A Groatsworth of Good Counsel for a Penny; / Or, The Bad Husbands Repentance. / Bad Husbands all, come hear what I have pend, / I hope this song to you will be a friend, / And let no man now spend his means in waste, / It brings him into poverty and disgrace, / And now bad Husbands hear what I say, / And save a groat against a rainy day.
