I'm saying every day

I’m saying every day
“If I should be a Queen, tomorrow”
I’d do this way
And so I deck, a little,

If it be, I wake a Bourbon,
None on me, bend supercilious
With “This was she
Begged in the Market place

Court is a stately place
I’ve heard men say
So I loop my apron, against the Majesty
With bright Pins of Buttercup
That not too plain
Rank overtake me

And perch my Tongue
On Twigs of singing rather high
But this, might be my brief Term
To qualify

Put from my simple speech all plain word
Take other accents, as such I heard
Though but for the Cricket just,
And but for the Bee
Not in all the Meadow
One accost me

Better to be ready
Than did next morn
Meet me in Aragon
My old Gown on

And the surprised Air
Rustics wear
Summoned unexpectedly
To Exeter
