The credulous virgins complaint, or, Lovers made happy at last : being a caution to the female sex : being a most pleasant new song in two parts, with the youngmans [sic] kind answer : Celia complains virgins are oft too kind, the which she did by late experience find, for yielding unto Damon she does prove that hasty pleasures are the bain of love : but in the tempest of her wounding grief, Damon comes in and yields her kind relief : but vows renew, and at last both are wed, though he before had got her maiden-head : to the tune of Sawny will never be my love again.
