Contents
'Tis woman that seduces all mankind -- If love the virgin's heart invade -- Virgins are like the fair flower -- I, like a ship in storms, was tossed -- A fox may steal your hens, Sir -- The miser thus a shilling sees -- If the heart of a man is depressed with cares -- Man may escape from rope and gun -- Thus when a good housewife sees a rat/How cruel are the traytors -- Why how now, Madam Flirt! -- When young at the bar/Ungrateful Macheath! -- Thus gamesters united in friendship -- I'm like a skiff on the ocean tossed -- O cruel, cruel case!
