Magdalene College - Pepys
The Hampshire Miller, short and thick, / With an Overton Widow he's done the trick, / He shook her Plum-tree, / they chance to catch a fall, / Upslipt her Cloaths, Smock and all; / A woman peep'd through a hole, / she is short and thick, / And see the Miller and the Widow do the trick.
