Words   As I lay musing all alone, a merry tale I thought upon, Now listen a, while and I will you tell, Of a fryar that lov'd a bonny lass, well, He came to her when she was going to bed, Desiring to have, her maidenhead, But she denied his desire, Saying that she did fear, hellfire, Tush tush, quoth the fryer, thou need's not, If thou wert, in hell I could sing thee out, Why then, quoth the maid, thou shalt, have thy request, The fryer was as glad as a fox in his nest ...
