Lyrics: Matthew Prior, in imitation of Geoffrey Chaucer

Fair Susan did her wifehode well mayntayne,
Algates assaulted sore by leachers twayne.
Now, an I reade arighte the auncient song
The paramours were olde, the dame was yong.
Had thilk same tale in other guise been told
Had they been yong and she been olde.
Pardie. That wou'd ha' been much sorer tryale,
Full marvailous I wot, were such denyale.
