Ballad Title To her brown Beard. / For i'le warrant the Girl he'l Love the. / This Counsel doth advise all Maidens, kind, / To have a care lest Cupid make them blind, / Whereby to dote on Young mens fickle Love, / Which their actions will unconstant prove: / Husbands enough, and plenty may be had, / Some very good, and some exceeding bad; / Then come fair Maids, pray pick and chuse the best, / And let Old Nick make use of all the rest,
Tune Imprint Tune of Sweet is the Lass, or my maidenhead will not o're load me.
