Catches, canons and drinking songs
Have you observ'd the Wench in the Street, She's scarce any Hose, or Shoes to her Feet, yet She is very merry, and wn she cries, she sings, I ha' Hot Codling, Hot Codlings.
Or, have you ever seen, or heard, the Mortal with the Lyon tawny Beard, he lives as merrily as any heart can wish, and still he cries, Buy a Brish, Buy a Brish.
since these are merry, why shou'd we take care? Musicians like Camelians, must live by the Air, then let's by Blith, and bonny, and no good meeting balk, for when we have no Money, we shall find Chalk.
