A New BALLAD / Of an Amorous Coachman, / Who was so difficult in pleasing his Love-sick Fancy; that after his several Ad- / dresses to the Female Sex, he was at last Married: which made him cry out, / Alass! My Humour is so hard to please, / That I find Love, not Love, but a Disease; / Yes a Disease that rages in my Heart, / And wounds my Amorous Soul in ev'ry part: / I love and loath and both within an hour, / So soon my Loathing Loving do's devour.
