Kind miss
Language: English 
Kind miss, kind miss, go ask your mother,
If you my bride shall ever be.
If she says "Yes," come back and tell me.
If she says "No," we'll run away.
Kind miss, I have much gold and silver;
Kind miss, I have a house and land.
Kind miss, I have a world of pleasure,
And all of these at thy command.
What do I care for your gold and silver?
What do I care for your house and land?
Kind sir, what do I care for your world of leisure, 
When all I want is a handsome man?
