A Tippling Ballad

On the Duke of Brunswick's Breaking up his Camp, and the defeat of the Austrians, by Dumourier, November 1792.

     When Princes and Prelates,
     And hot-headed zealots,
     A'Europe had set in a low, a low,
     The poor man lies down,
     Nor envies a crown,
     And comforts himself as he dow, as he dow,
     And comforts himself as he dow.

     The black-headed eagle,
     As keen as a beagle,
     He hunted o'er height and o'er howe,
     In the braes o' Gemappe,
     He fell in a trap,
     E'en let him come out as he dow, dow, dow,
     E'en let him come out as he dow.

     But truce with commotions,
     And new-fangled notions,
     A bumper, I trust you'll allow;
     Here's George our good king,
     And Charlotte his queen,
     And lang may they ring as they dow, dow, dow,
     And lang may they ring as they dow.
