The Willoughby Whim

Oh Jenny, Jenny, where hast thou been?
Father and Mother are seeking for thee,
You have been ranting, playing the Wanton,
Keeping of Jockey Company.

Oh Molly, I've been to hear (the) Mill clack,
And grind Grist for the Family,
Full as it went I've brought hame my Sack,
For the Miller has taken his Toll of me.

from Pills to Purge Melancholy, 1719
