John of Landwart’s Dream upon the High-Cock-Upps; or, his Sentments of the Vain Apparel of the Female Sex

This ballad begins: TO Edinburgh Town where he did come once, / At first blink he espyed some ones, / Who high upon their snout did wear things, / And at their Luges he saw Gould Ear rings? / At which the man was so amazed, / He in their faces stair’d and gazed? It was to be be sung ‘To its own proper Tune’. for more click here
