Stand too't WHETSTON-PARK Ladies: or; The Countrey Lasses farewel to Sorrow.

Maids, here's Caution how to gain rich Talents,
Do, as I've done, keep Company with Gallants;
By which I'm rais'd from mean to high degree,
In being to young Heirs and Gallants free:
I fear no Colours but will stand it out,
The worst can be, is the Covent-Garden-Gout.
To the Tune of, Never a Penny of Money.
[figure]
I Am a brave Lase, and I Travel'd about,
with a fa la la la le le la le ro,
And behav'd my self bravely upon the Road,
with a fa la la la le le la le ro;
And was welcome to every place where I did come,
And many a brave Gallant did look me upon,
But I have fine trick for to play with my own:
with a fa la la le la le ro.
I prosper'd so well that to London I came,
with a fa la, &c.
For that is a place to get a good name,
with a fa la, &c.
And there I have got a place unto my mind,
And many brave Gallants do me find:
I'le promise unto them I'le not be unkind:
with a fa la, &c.
Now a crown or an Angel I have in the nick,
with a fa la, &c.
For they find that I bravely can do the trick,
with a fa la, &c.
I have my Silk-Gowns, and my Scarfs to wear,
And many a brave Gallant doth call me their Dear,
They see I am so willing to let out my Ware.
with a fa la, &c.
When I was in the Country I thought of a thing,
with a fa la, &c.
That it was a great shame to sit there for to Spin:
with a fa la, &c.
And Whigg, whey, and Butter milk was but course dyet,
For in my mind I could never be quite,
Now I am in London I live for more riot:
with a fa la, &c.
Of Capon and Coney I feed on great store,
with a fa la, &c.
And now I forgot that e're I was poor,
with a fa la, &c.
I care not for Sister, I care not for Brother,
I live like a Lady as well as another,
And all with a mark that is after my Mother:
with a fa la, &c.
My Money comes easily into my Lap,
with a fa la, &c.
I am a found Country Girl, and give no one a Clap,
with a fa la, &c.
Five Crowns at a time I have in my han [...].
And all for fine kisses they have at command,
This is gallant profit I do understand,
with a fa la la le le la le ro.
Though I was but simply born in degree,
with a fa la, &c.
My Father old [...]est in getting of me.
with a fa la, &c.
He got me so pertty and neat to the eye,
That any that comes will hardly pass by,
They venture a Guinney or too for to try,
with a fa la, &c.
I russel in Silk and I trample about,
with a fa la, &c.
I tune up my Notes for to make them look out,
with a fa la, &c.
And when I have caught a brave spark in my lure,
That money about him is mine to be sure,
O this kissing is costly it had need to be pure.
with a fa la, &c.
I'le send for my Sister she shall be of my Trade,
with a fa la, &c.
She's as pretty as I am, and is as well made,
with a fa la, &c.
And not live in the Country to abide so much itch,
But come up to London and learn to be rich,
What if now and then she do venture a touch,
with a fa la, &c.
Nothing venture, nothing have,
with a fa la, &c.
I am all for brave Gamsters, I scorn a poor knave,
with a fa la, &c.
With my eye I command them at every wink,
And Sack and Burn'd Claret they give me to drink,
Besides I am foremost with great store of Chinck.
with a fa la, &c.
Who live in the Country as I did before,
with a fa la, &c.
For a Groat a day that's very poor,
with a fa la, &c.
When Crowns and Angels are nothing to me,
To pleasure young Gallants that be free,
If I make use of my own, what is that to thee,
with a fa la, &c.
So I can hold up my trade, & live free from all sorrow,
with a fa la, &c.
If I have no money o're-night, I'le have some to mor­row
with a fa la, &c.
And call for a Coach, and jog it about,
With ranting brave Gallants come in and go out,
If I escape but the Covent-Garden Gout.
with a fa la la le le la le ro.
FINIS.
