If anyone long for a musical song
Although that his hearing be thick
The sound that it bears will ravish his ears
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

A pleasant young maid on an instrument played
That knew neither note nor prick
She had a good will to live by her skill
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

A youth in that art, well seen in his part
They call├ęd him Derbyshire Dick
Came to her a suitor and would be her tutor
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

To run with his bow he was not slow
His fingers were nimble and quick
When he played on his bass he ravished the lass
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

He wooed her and taught he until he had brought her
To hold out a crotchet and prick
And by his direction she came to perfection
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

With playing and wooing he still would be doing
He taught her to play with a stick
His reasonable motion brought her to devotion
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

He pleased her so well that backwards she fell
And swooned as though she were sick
So sweet was his note that up went her coat
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

The string of his viol she put to the trial
Till she had the full length of the stick
Her white-bellied lute she set to his flute
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

Thus she with her lute and he with his flute
Held every crotchet and prick
She learned at leisure, yet played for the pleasure
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

His viol string burst, her tutor she cursed
However, she played with the stick
From October to June she was quite out of tune
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

And then she repented that e'er she'd consented
To have either note or prick
For learning so well made her belly to swell
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick

All maids that make trial of a lute or a viol
Take heed how you handle the stick
If you like not this order come try my recorder
Whoop, `Tis but a wanton trick
