1640: You ajudge men

You ajudge men by the state of their teeth
their yellowed smiles scratch at your nerves
but you’ll greedily bear money’s bad breath

You seek out arrangements – love’s not enough
there’s a deal to be done – his cash will be burnt
You ajudge men by the state of their teeth

You wear his bare gifts – binding handcuffs
kiss his foul mouth as he fumbles his words
but you’ll greedily bear money’s bad breath

You prized his gold gifts – I found out how much
your use of rich men stilled my worked worth
You ajudge men by the state of their teeth

Then he used words that suggested his love
so you steered your tongue to trigger just lust
but you’ll greedily bear money’s bad breath

Leave poorly paid men – we are not enough
because you’ll always put a rich man first
You ajudge men by the state of their teeth
but you’ll greedily bear money’s bad breath
