Thread Name: Lyr Req/ADD: Ladies Go A-Thieving/Curious Times
Subject: RE: Lyr req: Curious Times
O don't we live all in curious times
You scare could be believing.
When Frenchmen fight aye and Emperors die.
And ladies go a theiving.

Oh theiving is a wicked trade .
As I to you will state now.
If a poor man steals a penny loaf.
They'll send im up to newgate.

He'll get 6 months all in newgate gaol
In a rougery for dealing.
But not that lady all in a veil
Who ventures out a theiving.

Sure there are more verses, that's all I remember.
