    From earlier, about 1725,

    The Maunders Praise Of His Strowling Mort.

    Doxy, oh! thy glaziers shine
    As glimmar; by the Salomon!
    No gentry mort hath prats like thine,
    No cove e’er wap’d with such a one.

    White thy fambles, red thy gan,
    And thy quarrons dainty is;
    Couch a hogshead with me then,
    And in the darkmans clip and kiss.

    What though I no togeman wear,
    Nor commission, mish, or slate;
    Store of strammel we’ll have here,
    And ith’ skipper lib in state.

    Wapping thou I know does love,
    Else the ruffin cly the mort;
    From thy stampers then remove,
    Thy drawers, and let’s prig in sport.

    When the lightman up does call,
    Margery prater from her nest,
    And her Cackling cheats withal,
    In a boozing ken we’ll feast.

    There if lour
