The Sorrowfull Damsels Lamentation / For Want of a Husband. / This Maiden sure was in a Longing Temper, / And Young men they are to blame that would venture, / It is a pity any Damsel she / Should want the help of a Young man's Company. / This Maidens Fortune proves so very Hard, / That never a Young does her no more Regard: / But Young men hereafter be sure to have a Care, / They do not bring Young Maidens to Despair.
