A Junto Song

'Tis money makes the members vote
And sanctifies our ways,
It makes the patriot turn his coat
And money we must raise, and
     A-taxing we will go,  will go
     And a-taxing we will go.

More taxes we must sure impose
To raise the civil list;
Also pay our ayes and noes,
And make opposers hist, and
  A-taxing we will go,  &c.

The power supreme of Parliament
Our purpose did assist.
And taxing laws abroad were sent
Which rebels do resist, and
  A -taxing we will go,  &c.

Boston we shall in ashes lay,
It is a nest of knaves;
We'll make them soon for mercy pray
Or send them to their graves, and
  A-taxing we will go,  &c.

Each colony, we will propose,
Shall raise an ample sum;
Which well applied, under the rose,
May bribe them---as at home, and
  A-taxing we will go  &c,

We'll force and fraud in one unite,
To bring them to our hands;
Then lay a tax on the sun's light
And king's tax on their lands, and
   A -taxing we will go,  &c.

From Songbook of the American Revolution, Rabson
Note: in 1775, Britain sent a "Junto" of three generals, Clinton
     Howe and Burgoyne, to th colonies to put the rebellious
     colonists in their place.
