Pleasant and Diver live. 2 1
And all as they wish'd, would be ;
The Jacobite Jade,
Talk'd as if she was mad,
In hopes to have had Twangdillo, Twang, &c.
A Vintner's fat Widow then straight was view'd,
Whose Cuckold had pick'd up some Pelf :
He had kill'd half his Neighbours with Wine he'd

And make him of London free ;

That newly a Milking had been,
Round-fac'd, Cherry-cheek'd, with a smirking Eye,
Came tripping it over the Green :

And in her lac'd Bodice,
'' A Span she could hardly be ;
Her Hips were plump grown,
And her Hair a dark Brown ;
'Twas she that brought down Twangdillo, Twangdillo,
Twangdillo, Twangdillo, young lusty Twangdillo \
