Like a flouriling young gallant, newly come to his

land, Who keeps a brace of painted madams at his command, And takes up a thousand pound upon his father's land, And gets drunk in a tavern, till he can neither go nor

stand;

Like a young courtier, &c.

[ocr errors]

Withanew-fashiond hall, built where the oldone flood, Hung round with new pictures, that doe the poor no

good, With a fine marble chimney, wherein burns neither

coal nor wood, And a new smooth shovelboard, whereon no victuals . neer stood;

Like a young courtier, &c.

[ocr errors]

With a knew buttery hatch, that opens once in four or

five days, And a new French cook, to devise fine kickshaws, and

toys;

Like a young courtier, &c.

[ocr errors]

With new titles of honour bought with his father's old

gold, For which sundry of his anccltors old manors are sold;

And this is the course most of our new gallants hold, Which makes that good house-keeping is now grown so cold,

Among the young courtiers of the king,
Or the king's young courtiers.

Where ever you travell’d then,

You might meet on the way Brave knights and gentlemen,

Clad in their country gray, That courteous would appear,

And kindly welcome you: No puritans then were,

When this old cap was new.
