UPON A WELL-KNOWN LIBERTY SONG.
1768.

THE PARODY.
Come shake your dull noddles, ye pumpkins, and bawl, And own that you're mad at fair Liberty's call; No scandalous conduct can add to your shame, Condemn'd to dishonor, inherit the fame.
In folly you're born, and in folly you'll live, To madness still ready, And stupidly steady, Not as men, but as monkeys, the tokens you give.
