Maids Lamentation, / That lives in a great distress / Her Sweet-heart hath forsaken her, / Now she lives in weariness, / She's almost spoil'd for Cure, / And makes such mighty moan / That she no longer can endure / Herself to lie alone, / But wisheth for a Man / To ease her of her Woe: / Her Maidenhead does trouble her, / That She's not able for to go.
