Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: “You blockhead, you fool‥


“You blockhead, you fool, for what do you take me?
d’ye think that my wife e’re a monster would make me?”
“Soft and fair my dear friend, you’re an ass to look blue,
she’s so ugly no one will e’er cuckold you,”
“Fie, neighbours ne’er quarrel like these,
for your wife and my wife will do as they please.”
