REIGN OF ELIZABETH.
115
Stand to it, noble pikemen,
And look you round about: And shoot you right, you bowmen,
And we will keep them out: You musquet and caliver men,
Do you prove true to me, I'le be the foremost man in fight,
Saya brave Lord Willoughbey.
The sharp steel-pointed arrows,
And bullets thick did fly, Then did our valiant soldiers
Charge on most furiously; Which made the Spaniards waver,
They thought it best to flee, They fear'd the stout behaviour
Of brave Lord Willoughbcy.
Then quoth the Spanish general,
Come let us march away, I fear we shall be spoiled all
If here we longer stay; For yonder comes Lord AVilloughbey
With courage fierce and fell, He will not give one inch of way
For all the devils in hell.
And then the fearful enemy
Was quickly put to flight, Our men pursued couragiously,
And caught their forces quite; But at last they gave a shout,
Which ecchoed through the sky, God, and St. George for England!
The conquerors did cry.
