Burgoyne, the king's commander,
From Canada set sail, With full eight thousand reg'lars,
He thought he could not fail; With Indians and Canadians,
And his curs'd Tory crew, On board his fleet of shipping,
He up the Champlain flew.

And we did them espy. Their motions we observed,
Full well both night and day, And our brave boys prepared,
To have a bloody fray.
Our garrison they viewed them,
And straight their troops did land,
And when St. Clair, our chieftain, The fact did understand,
