The supper o'er, the table cleared The waiter brought white wine and red The waiter brought white wine and red While the chambermaid prepared the bed Between the hours of one and two She asked me if to bed I'd go Immediately I did consent And along with this pretty girl I went. Her cheeks was white and her lips was red And I kissed her as she laid in bed But soon as she was fast asleep Out of the bed then I did creep. I searched her pockets and there I found A silver snuffbox and ten pound A gold watch and a diamond ring I took the lot and locked her in. Now all young men listen to me If you meet a pretty girl you use her free You use her free but don't get pied remember me when I was up Cheapside.
