This production appeared in a ballad sheet in the early part of 1775, and was afterwards reprinted in the Constitutional Gazette, with a slight abridgment in the text.
A,  stands for Americans, who scorn to be slaves;
B,  for Boston, where fortitude their freedom saves;
C,  stands for Congress, which, though loyal, will be free;
D,  stands for defence, 'gainst force and tyranny.
Stand firmly, A and Z,
We swear for ever to be free !
E,  stands for evils, which a civil war must bring;
F,  stands for fate, dreadful to both people and king ;
G,  stands for George, may God give him wisdom and
H, stands for hypocrite, who wears a double face.
