1775.
A NEW SONG TO AN OLD TUNE.
What a court, hath old England, of folly and sin, Spite of Chatham and Camden, Barre, Burke, Wilkes
and Grlynn! Not content with the game act, they tax fish and sea, And America drench with hot water and tea. Derry down, down, hey derry down.
Lord Sandwich, he swears they are terrible cowards, Who can't be made brave by the blood of the Howards; And to prove there is truth in America's fears, He conjures Sir Peter's ghost 'fore the peers.
