Subject: Tune Req: Lass of LYNNsNewJoy / Marry&ThankYeToo

The excellent English Broadside Ballad Archive has a facsimile of a broadside published 1682-1692, which I'd like to sing,

THE
Lass of LYNNs New Joy
For finding a Father for her Child.
Being a Third SONG of MarryandThank ye too:
To the same Tune. Licensed according to Order.

I cannot find any reference to an extant tune called either The Lass of Lynn's New Joy or Marry and Thank ye, Too (confused as to which title, but suspect it should be the latter).

Can any 'catters help? If the tune is lost, could anyone suggest a tune contemporaneous with 1682 or before that would fit these sample verses?

COme listen, and hear me tell
      the end of a Tale so true,
The Lass that made her Belly Swell,
      with Marryand thank ye too.

With many hard Sobs and Throws,
    and Sorrow enough (I wot)
She had wept Tears, the whole Town knows,
    would fill a whole Chamber-pot.

For Pleasure with Pain she pays,
    her Belly and Shame to hide,
So hard all day she Lac'd her Stayes,
    as Pinched both her Back and Side.


Cheers all
Stower

There is an abc version and some further info at the Fiddler's Companion site under the title "Aye, marry, and thank ye too" -

That's great, and led me to Chappell's 'Popular Music', which is online in its entirety and has more info. Thanks, Lynn.
