254                                     A SONG.
The Congress did boast of their mighty ally, But George does both France and the Congress defy; And when Britons unite, there's no force can withstand Their fleets and their armies, by sea and on land.
Thus supported, our cause we will ever maintain, And all treaties with rebels will ever disdain; Till reduc'd by our arms, they are forc'd to confess, While ruled by Great Britain they ne'er knew distress.
Then let us, my boys, Britain's right e'er defend, Who regards not her rights, we esteem not our friend ; Then, brave boys, we both France and the Congress defy, And we'll fight for Great Britain and George till we die. Then cheer up, my lads, we have nothing to fear, While we remain steady, And always keep ready, To add to the trophies of this happy year.
