Included in Warren's nineteenth collection of glees and catches without attribution, this is 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

Quoth Hodge, "My fortune's made, I'm in my lady's favour,
And Suke's to be my lady's maid; Oh Lord what pleasure!
Oh when then shall she be my wife; my fortune's made for ever".
