AMERICAN TAXATION.
I'll give a true relation,
Attend to what I say Concerning the taxation
Of North America.
The cruel lords of Britain,
Who glory in their shame, The project they have hit on
They joyfully proclaim; 'Tis what they're striving after
Our right to take away, And rob us of our charter
In North America.
There are two mighty speakers,
Who rule in Parliament, Who ever have been seeking
Some mischief to invent; 'Twas North, and Bute his father
The horrid plan did lay A mighty tax to gather
In North America.
