The Contented Cuckold, or / Patience upon force is a Medcine for a Mad Man. / You batchellors both young and old / give ear unto this ditty, / A story here I will unfold / in mirth I hope it will fit ye, / A batchellor of threescore years / a Damsel young did marry / Now he complains she doth him wrong / and basely doth miscarry: / Near Worksworth Town in Darby-shire / this couple they do dwell, / With patience pray this ditty hear / and then I bid farewell.
