ROUND, BOYS, INDEED
15   Now to conclude my harmlesse dittie,
round boyes round, I wish both countrie towne and Citie,
round boyes indeed. That euery man and woman kind,
a faithfull friend may euer flnde So here my friends you know my mind,
keepe money to serue your need.
16   I trust none of this company,
round boyes, rounds Will with this song offended bee,
round boyes indeed, therefore let some kind Creature heare
giue hansell for to buy me beere, To make my throat more shrill & cleere
you see2 I haue great need.
L.P.
Printed at London for /. Wright. 1 No comma in the text.            2 Text sae.
