Meanwhile, in the fourth line if the third stanza above has a social meaning marked in words “for wooing the next girl”.
If we compare the word “wooing” based on conceptual meaning, “wooing” means “persuading or flirting someone to get attention”, but in social meaning, the word “wooing” has a different meaning that is “seeking the affection of a woman which is usually with the hope of marriage “.
