Seite 21 - Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, Thy head, thy sovereign; one that cares for thee, And for thy maintenance commits his body To painful labour both by sea and land, To watch the night in storms, the day in cold, Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe; And craves no other tribute at thy hands But love, fair looks and true obedience; Too little payment for so great a debt.
Seite 1 - I will be master of what is mine own : She is my goods, my chattels ; she is my house, My household stuff, my field, my barn, My horse, my ox, my ass, my any thing ; And here she stands, touch her whoever dare ; I'll bring mine action on the proudest he That stops my way in Padua.
Seite 33 - Dr. Swift had been observing once to Mr. Gay what an odd pretty sort of a thing a Newgate Pastoral might make. Gay was inclined to try at such a thing for some time; but afterwards thought it would be better to write a comedy on the same plan. This was what gave rise to the Beggar's Opera.

For she must have both hoods and gowns, and hoops to swell her pride, With scarfs and stays, and gloves and lace ; and she will have men beside ; And when she's drest with care and cost, all-tempting, fine and gay, As men should serve a Cowcumber, she flings herself away.
Seite 12 - Let us drink and sport to-day, Ours is not to-morrow. Love with youth flies swift away, Age is nought but Sorrow. Dance and sing, Time's on the Wing. Life never knows the Return of Spring.
Seite 36 - Which way shall I turn me ? how can I decide ? Wives, the day of our death, are as fond as a bride. One wife is too much for most husbands to hear, But two at a time there's no mortal can bear.
Seite 11 - I must have women. There is nothing unbends the mind like them. Money is not so strong a cordial for the time. — Drawer. — (Enter DRAWER.) Is the Porter gone for all the ladies, according to my directions?
