Content's a Treasure; / Or, The Jovial Loyalist. / A most pleasant New play-Song, greatly in Request, both at Court and / THEATRE. / Content's a Treasure, nothing more can be, / 'Tis all that can make happy thee or me; / Content and Loyalty, and harmless Mirth, / Are those that give to all our Joys a Birth: / Wine is a charm, 'tis armour-proof and male, / It quicks our Sences, when our Wits do fail; / Keeps us from Cold, and hushes all our Cares, / And in the midst of Dangers stiffles fears.
