192 Songs That Every Child Should Know
The Vicar Of Bray
The hero of this song was a real Vicar of Bray, who, when reproached for his variability, answered, " Not so, neither ; for if I changed my religion, I am sure I kept true to my principle, which is to live and die the Vicar of Bray ! " At about that time, too constant vicars were being burned at the stake, thus the hero of this song at least had the better part of valor to commend him. Words were written about 1720 by an officer in Colonel Fuller's regiment.
