One of those catches that is more lubricious in performance than the anodyne lyrics might suggest. This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original specialised format.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Hodge told Sue he loved her as his life,
And if she'd be kind he would make her his wife.
Hodge told Sue he would make her his wife,
Which tickl'd her fancy and kindled love's fire.
Fond love then prevailed, and he had his desire,
Then left in the lurch, again and again,
With grief told her tale, but 'twas all in vain.
