Recording Information
Ballad Title The loving Chamber-maid. / Or, Vindication of a departed maidenhead. / Being the Art to lye with a Man and yet be a Virgin. / Maidens ---- but Ah what is a maid I pray / An infant Female that scarce views the day, / For e're the things we Virgins call aspire / To 13 years, they feel a strange desire: / Longing for what themselves can scarcely tell, / Which strange desire of make their bellies swell / And then what 'tis they know too fatal well.
