That none shall thither come
to worke a violence, Great and small, high and low,
all must keepe silence, For it is by many spoken,
that Hollands, &c.
12   Yet youngsters1 arme your selues,
here comes new tidings Allthough the Campe be broke,
for their abidings, They haue a refuge found,
that can defend them, Drummes, pikes and musketers
doth there attend them Then brauely march along,
gallants in clusters, Arrive at Bewdly,
where they keep their musters.
13   There front garded is
with such strong forces Only they left behind
some certaine Horses, Yet for a trifle
they will not be daunted, When once their Colors
o'th' wall is aduanced. Feare to march away,
gallants in clusters, To Bewdly heigh, where
they keep their musters.
14   Now if my newes in
this song may content you, Buy it and try it
and neuer repent you,
1 Text younster.
