Song from Love in a Tub
Sir George Etherege, The Comical Revenge; or, Love in a Tub (1664).
1If she be not as kind as fair,
2 But peevish and unhandy,
3Leave her, she's only worth the care
4 Of some spruce Jack-a-dandy.
5I would not have thee such an ass,
6Hadst thou ne'er so much leisure,
7To sigh and whine for such a lass
8 Whose pride's above her pleasure.
