Original text and translations
Simkin said that Sis was fair
and that he meant to love her;
he set her on his amb'ling mare,
all this he did to prove her.
When they came home, Sis floted cream,
and pour'd it throught a strainer,
but swore that Simkin should have none,
because he did, he did disdain her.
