For Oxford and for Waldegrave
You give much more than me you gave;
Which is not fairly to behave,
My Murray.
 
Because if a live dog, 'tis said,
Be worth a lion fairly sped,
A live lord must be worth two dead,
My Murray.
 
And if, as the opinion goes,
Verse hath a better sale than prose—
Certes, I should have more than those,
My Murray.
 
But now this sheet is nearly cramm’d,
So, if you will, I shan’t be shamm’d,
And if you won’t, you may be damn’d,
My Murray.
