Recording Information
Ballad Title Two-penny-worth of Wit / For a PENNY. / OR, The bad Husband turn'd Thrifty / This Man that wrought his own decay, / And spent his Money night and day; / Is turn'd to saving I do swear, / There's few that with him can compare: / And lives so civil in his ways, / That all his neighbors give him Praise, / And does repeat his wicked Crime, / And desires good Fellows to turn in time; / There's many a Man Runs himself clear out, / When Ale's in his Head, then Wit is out.
