|Title||The New Exchange|
|History|| One of two tunes commemorating a large commercial building built in|
1609 in competition with the Royal Exchange. Because there was another
tune by this title, it was renamed "The New New Exchange" (1665) and
"The New Royal Exchange" (1670).
|Words|| I'll go no more to the New Exchange, there is no room at all|
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
