'Tis Money makes a Man: / OR, The Good-Fellows Folly. / Here in this Song Good Fellow thou mayst find, / How Money makes a Man, if thou'rt not blind? / Therefore return e're that it be too late, / And don't on Strumpets spend thy whole estate, / For when all is gone, no better thou wilt be: / But Laught to scorn in all thy poverty.
