The Rambling young Gallant / Newly set up for himself. / That Courts young Wenches night and day, / And with them he can bravely Play; / And for his Sport they give him Money, / They pay him well, and call him Honey: / That he does bear the Bell away, / Amongst the Females every day; / They are brave Lasses I do Swear, / That will maintain a Man so rare.
