[?] You young-men all I pray draw neer, / That does desire a song to hear, / It will teach you what wife for to chuse, / Who to take, and who to refuse, / And a man may have a woman in a trice, / They are termed to the chance o'th Dice, / But you must venture, have at all, / Whether you stand or get a fall.

Tune Imprint To the Tune of, The World goes merrily round.
First Lines YOu young men that want skill in wooing, / and if ye desire to be wed,
Refrain But chiefly I wish you beware, / of a wench with a rowling eye, / For she than can cousen and swear, / can also dissemble and lye.
