Magdalene College - Pepys 3.185
 
The Merry MANS Resolution / Or a LONON Frollick. / He goes a wooing yet the matters so, / He cares not much whether he speeds or no, / Cause City Wives and Wenches are so common / He thinks it hard to find an honest woman / Ben't angry with this fellow I protest / That many a true word hath been spoke in jest, / By degrees he layes a wager money's scant / Vntil five shillings out, then ends his Rant.
