It sets not Maidens als To let Men lowse thair Lace, Nor clym about Mens Hals, To clap, to kiss, and brace, Nor round in secret Place; Sic Treatment is a Train To cleave thair Quaver-Case, And breid them Dule and Pain. VII. Fareweil with Chestetie, Frae Wenches fall a Chucking, Thair follows Things thre, To gar them gae a Gucking, Imbracing, Imbracing, Tigging, Plucking; Thir foure the Suth to sane, Enforsis them I (all not sayt again. VIII. Sum lykes new cum to Toun, With Jeigs to mak them joly, Sum lykes danss up and doun To miess thair Melancholy; Sum lykes Sang, troly loly, And sum of rigging fain; Lyk Fillocks full of Foly, With litle Gier thair ain. IX. Sum Mune-brunt Maidens myld, At None-tyde os the Nicht, Are chapit up with Chyld, Bot Coal or Candle-licht; Enforfa than 'Tis not impossible but a complete Copy of this old Ballad may be found to supply these few Blanks. Sua sum said, Mayds has Slicht To play, and tak nae Pane, Syne schift thair sells frae Sicht, I sall not sayt again. Sum thinks nae Schame to clap And kiss in open Ways; Sum cannot keip her ap Frae lansing, as scho lyes; Sum goes sae gymp in Gyse, Or scho war kiflH, but plain, Scho leur be married thryis, And thre Tymes thryis again. XI. Mair Gentrice is to jot Undir a Silkin Goun, Than with quhyt Pettycot And redyar ay boun, The denkest sonest doun, The fairest but refrain, The gayest greatest Loun, But dinna tellt again. XII. The moir degest and grave, The grydiar The nycest to ressave Upon thair The quhytliest will quhipit, And nocht thair The less, the larger hippit; I sall not sayt again. XIII. Lo Ladyis gif this be, A gude Counsale I geife zou, To save zour Honestie, Frae Sklander to releife zou; But Ballats mae to breif zou, I will not break more
