MORRIS DANCERS AT REVESBY.

Landlord.

What care I for thee ? Is not another as good as thee That will pay me my Rents twice a year ?

Tennant.

Kind Sir, I do think fit, that to you I should submit, And you shall have the upper hand.

Landlord.

"Well said, if you can do it, I will never turn you out, You shall rent some part of my Land.

Tennant.

I like a loving Landlord, and him I mean to pay.

Landlord.

I like a loving Tennant, sometime of him I'll stay. This is to let you know, you Tennants must obey, And pay Landlords their Rents twice a year.
