Composer: Thomas Ravenscroft
Original text and translations
My master is so wise
that hee’s proceceded witt all,
my Mistris is a foole
and yet tis the most getall.
Let the Usurer cram him in interest that excel,
their pits enough to damme him before he goes to hell.
Where care he come, theirs some.
