Ballad Title Poor Tom the Taylor / His Lamentation. / Giving an Account how he pickt up a Miss near the Maypole in the Strand, and also how / he handed her to the Fair. where he treated her very generously, but according to / the old proverb, sweet meat must have sower sauce, for while he was safe a snoring / in Bed she very dexterously picked his pocket, leaving him to pay the Reckoning, / without ever a penny in his purse, This unfortunate disaster may well be a warning to / all the Taylors in or about London to forsake their old accustomed tricks, setting poor Tom before them as an example.
