He that hath no mistresse
Language: English 
He that hath no mistresse,
Must not weare a fauor,
He that wooes a mistris,
Must serue before he haue her,
He that hath no bedfellow,
Must lie alone,
And he that hath no Lady,
Must be content with Ione,
And so must I,
For why alas my loue and I am parted,
False Cupid I will haue thee whipt,
And haue thy mother carted.
