My Mistress That’s Pretty
Anonymous
 
(From Pills to Purge Melancholy, 1707)

I’LL sing you a Song of my Mistress that’s pretty,
  A Lady so frolic and gay;
It tickles my Fancy to tune her sweet Ditty,
  For Love was all her Play.
 
She’s witty and pretty, and tunes like a Fiddle,        5
  A Lady so frolic and gay;
She begins at both Ends, and ends in the Middle,
  For Love was all her Play.
 
She hugs and she Kisses without a Word speaking,
  A Lady so frolic and gay;        10
She falls on her Back without flinching and squeaking,
  For Love was all her Play.
 
She’s laden with Graces of Virtue and Honour,
  A Lady so frolic and gay;
’Twixt a fair pair of Sheets with warm Love upon her,        15
  For Love was all her Play.
