    I cannot eat but little meat,
  My stomach is not good;
But sure I think that I can drink
  With him that wears a hood.

    Back and side go bare, go bare,
  Both foot and hand go cold;
But, belly, God send thee good ale enough,
  Whether it be new or old.
          Gammer Gurton’s Needle. Act ii.
 
Note 1.
Stated by Dyce to be from a MS. of older date than Gammer Gurton’s Needle. See Skelton’s Works (Dyce’s ed.), vol. i. pp. vii–x, note. [back]
