5 So all young women who has got men And know not how to conquer them, I will tell you how I do; It is with my ladle, and so may you.
B A Rich Miser
Prom the Gernsey manuscript. A text similar to A, with two additional stanzas.
6   The girls they will for the young men plead And say for the ladle there is no need;
But they'll find out unto their sorrow And have a ladle or two to borrow.
7   Come all ye women who have cross men And don't know how to manage them, Up with a ladle and hit them a clew; That's the way to fetch them too.
