At Monmouth, too, we gained The honors of the dayŚ
The victory we obtained For North America.
Surely we were your betters
Hard by the Brandy wine; We laid him fast in fetters
Whose name was John Burgoyne ; We made your Howe to tremble
With terror and dismay ; True heroes we resemble,
In North America.
Confusion to the tories,
That black infernal name, In which Great Britain glories,
For ever to her shame; We'll send each foul revolter
To smutty Africa, Or noose him in a halter,
In North America.
