Wives Excuse

Hang this whining way of wooing,
Love was design'd a sport
Sighing talking without doing
Makes a silly idol court;
     Don't believe that words can move her,
     If she be not well inclined,
     She, herself must be the lover
To perswade her to be kind.
If at last she grants the favour,
And consents to be undone,
Never think your passion gave her
To your wishes but her own.

From Pills To Purge Melancholy Vol VI, D'Urfey
Also called Cuckolds Make Themselves
