- Sometimes I am a Tapster new
- Honest Shepher'd, since you're poor
- Blowzabela my bouncing Doxie
- As Oyster nan stood by her Tub
- There was a Lass of Islington
- Poor Celia once was very fair
- Oh Fie! what mean I Foolish Maid
- What Life can compare with the jolly Town Rakes
- I hate a Fop that at his Glass
- Would ye have a young Virgin of fifteen years
- Weep all ye Nymphs, our Floods unbind
- A Soldier and a Sailor, a Tinker and a Taylor
- Then Jockey wou'd a Wooing away
- With my Strings of small Wire lo I come
- How vlle are the Sordid Intrigues of the Town
- Life a Ring without a Finger
- Through the cold shady Woods
- When for Air I take my Mare
- Young Collin, cleaving of a Beam
- One Sunday at St. James Prayers
- There was an old Woman liv'd under a Hill
- Oh! my Panting, panting Heart
- Now listen a while, and I will tell
- Oh Mother, Roger with his KIsses
- Do not rumple my Top-knot
- Come Jug, my Honey, let's to bed
