Recording Information
Ballad Title THE / London Lads Lamentation / TO / CUPID. / OR, / When shall I my True-Love have? / All young-men must to Cupids power submit, / Courage and Wisdom, Vertue too, & Wit: / None can his mighty power & charms withstand / He, like young Beauty, always will Command: / And here young maidens easily may find, / How apt young-men are to be true & kind / Such constancy in them could scarce be found / Should men go search the Universe all round.
