I the man whofe mufe whilome did play A iwrne-pipe both to country and the citty, Am now againe enjoyn'd to fing or fay, And tune my crowde unto another ditty : To comfort moone-fac'd cuckolds that were fad, My Mufe before was all in homes yclad, But now she marcheth forth, and on her backe She weares a corflet of old Jherry sacke.
