The Ballad of the Cloak

Come buy my new Baller,
I hav’t in my wallet;
But it will not (I fear) please every pallet.
Then mark what ensu’th,
I swear by my Youth,
That every line in my Ballet is truth.
A Ballet of witt, a Ballet of worthe,
t’Is newly Printed and newly come forth :
It Was made of a Cloak, that fell out with a Gown,
That Crampt all the Kingdom and Crippl’d the Crown.
