Words   I'll go no more to the New Exchange, there is no room at all, It is, so throng'd and crowded by the gallants of Whitehall, But I'll go to, the Old Exchange, where old things are in fashion, For now the Kew's, become the shop of this blessed Reformation, Come, my new Courtiers,, what d'ye lack? Good consciences? I you do, Here's long and wide,, the only wear, the straight will trouble you
