The Womens just Complaint: / OR, / Mans Deceitfulness in Love. / Being a most Pleasant New Play-house Song. / Long time deceiv'd with feigned Vows, at last, / The Females find their Coyness holds not fast; / For Man, that Noble Creature, cannot Love, / Nor fix his Soul on ought but what's above: / 'Tis Everlasting joy he Centers on, / And leaves soft Fools, Women to dote upon; / Which once they finding, seem to loose their Care / Of hopes they had, and fall to flat dispair.
