A COUNTRY NEW JIG
Simon.
O Mine owne sweet heart, and when wilt thou be true: Or when will the time come,
that I shall marry you, That I may giue you kisses,
one, two or three, More sweeter then the hunny, that comes from the Bee.
Susan.
My Father is vnwilling
that I should marry thee, Yet I could wish in heart,
that so the same might be: For now me thinks thou seemest,
more louely vnto me: And fresher then the Blossomes,
that bloomes on the tree.
Simon.
Thy mother is most willing, and will consent I know,
Then let vs to thy Father now both together goe:
1 Cutoff.            2 Blurred.
