Magdalene College - Pepys
Recording Information
Ballad Title A Description of Bartholomew-Fair. / Whether this be wit or nonsence, who need care, / 'Tis like the subject, which is Bartholomew-Fair; / A mess of all-together, well enough, / To get good Money, which will make us huff, / And swagger bravely, drink a Glass, or so, / With some kind she-acquaintance, which you know, / Are pretty tempting things, so much for that, / I now must come to tell you plain and flat, / That in this Song the whole Fair you may view, / You may believe me when I tell you true.
