And now, my honey love,
Will we return unto thy father's house
And revel it as bravely as the best,

With ruffs and cuffs and farthingales and things;
With scarfs and fans and double change of brav'ry,
With amber bracelets, beads, and all this knav'ry.

He shows, on holidays, a sacred pin,
That touch'd the ruff, that touched Queen Bess' chin.

We ne'er shall see him more:
He used to wear an old drab coat
All buttoned down before.
