Song: The mate to a cock, and corn tall as wheat is...

The Mate to a Cock, & Corn tall as Wheat is his Christian Name, who in Musick's compleat, his Sirname begins with the Grace of a Cat, & concludes with the House of a Hermit note that, his Skill & performance each auditor wins, but the Poet deserves a good kick on the Shins.
Galli marita par tritico seges,

Intrat cognomen, blanditiis Cati,
Exit Eremi in œdibus stati,
Expertum effectum omnes admirentur
Quid merent Poetœ? ut bene calcentur.
