I name no thing, nor I meane no thing, But as pretie a thing as may bee.
(5) T Wentie iorneyes would I make, and twentie waies would hie me, To make aduenture for her sake, to set some matter by me: But I would faine haue a pretie thing, &c, (10) I name nothing, nor I meane nothing, &c. ¶ Some do long for pretie knackes, and some for straunge deuices: God send me that my Ladie lackes. I care not what the price is, thus faine, &c. (15) ¶ Some goe here, and some go there, wheare gases not be not geason: And I goe gaping euery where, but still come out of season. Yet faine, &c. ¶ I walke the towne, and tread the streete, (20) in euery corner seeking: The pretie thinge I cannot meete, thats for my Ladies liking. Faine, &c ¶ The Mercers pull me going by, the Silkie wiues say, what lacke ye (25) The thing you haue not, then say I ye foolish fooles, go packe ye. But fain &c ¶ It is not all the Silke in Cheape,nor all the golden treasure: Nor twentie Bushels on a heape, (30) can do my Ladie pleasure. But faine, &c. ¶ The Grauers of the golden showes, with Iuelles do beset me.
