A COUNTRY NEW JIG
Mother.
7   Daughter thou art old enough
to be a wedded wife, You maydens are desirous
to lead a marryed life. Then my consent good daughter
shall to thy wishes be, For young thou art as blossomes
that bloome vpon the tree.
Simon.
8   Then mother you are willing
your daughter I shall haue: And Susan thou art welcome
He keepe thee fine and braue. And haue those wished blessings
bestowed vpon thee, More sweeter then the honey
that comes from the Bee.
Susan.
9   Yet Simon I am minded
to lead a merry life, And be as well maintained
as any Citie wife: And Hue a gallant mistresse
of maidens that shall be More fayrer then the blossomes
that bloome vpon the tree.
*35
