Title The jealous Lover satisfy'd. / All you that do to love pretend, / Come lend an ear unto my song, / And say no more than you intend, / For therein you your selves do wrong.
Tune Imprint Tune of, The gallant Youth of Gravesend.
First Lines THere was in Bristol City fair / a Maiden of a good degree,
Refrain These were the words to her he said, / Sweet if thou dost my sute deny / I am undone, for i'me afraid / my heart will break, and I shall dye. [stanzas 1,3,5,7,9; with variations]; Yet if I thought you would be true, / as now you do pretend to me, / A single life i'd bid adieu, / and be as kind as kind could be. [stanzas 2,4,6,8; with variations]
