The Cloak’s Knavery

COME buy my New Ballad,
I have’t in my Wallet,
Tho I will not, I fear, please every Palate :
Then mark what ensu’th,
For I swear by my Youth,
That every Line in my Ballad is Truth :
A Ballad of Wit, a brave Ballad of Worth,
‘Tis newly Printed and newly come Forth,
‘Twas made of a Cloak that fell out with the Gown,
That cramp’d all the Kingdom and crippl’d the Crown.
