The Love-sick Maid quickly Revived. / Within the prime time of the Spring, / VVithin a Meadow she did sing; / And solemnly these words she said, / I fear that I shall dye a maid: / But her Sweetheart in Ambush lay, / And heard the words that she did say; / As in this Ditty you may hear / If that you please but to give ear.
