Ballad Title The Fathers good Counsel to his Lascivious Son. / OR / A Caveat against Wenching / The Proverb old does tell us all you know, / As crowes the old Cock so the young doth crow, / The Father does chastize the Son for sin, / And quite forgets what vice himself liv'd in. / The Son reflects, pray Sir leave off the Game, / And I'le endeavour for to do the same; / The Old Man hearing this with shame amends: / The Young one does so too, and both are friends.
