To Britain fly, where gold enslaves, And venal men their birth-right sell;
Tell North and his bribed clan of knaves, Their bloody acts were made in hell.
In Henry's reign those acts began, Which sacred rules of justice broke
North now pursues the hellish plan, To fix on us his slavish yoke.
But we oppose, and will be free,
This great good cause we will defend;
Nor bribe, nor Gage, nor North's decree, Shall make us " at his feet to bend."
From Anglia's ancient sons we came;
Those heroes who for freedom fought; In freedom's cause we'll march ; their fame,
By their example greatly taught.
Our king we love, but North we hate, Nor will to him submission own ;
If death's our doom, we'll brave our fate, But pay allegiance to the throne.
