A Catch Royal
HERE'S A HEALTH1
By Thomas Jordan (16131685)
Here's a health unto his Majesty,
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la ; Confusion to his enemies,
With a fal-la-la-la-la-la-la. And he that will not drink his health, I wish him neither wit nor wealth Nor yet a rope to hang himself, With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la !
A CATCH ROYAL
By Thomas Jordan 2
Let the drawer run down ; We'll sit and drink the sun down :
Here's a jolly health to the King ! Let him be confounded And hanged up for a Roundhead
That will not pledge me a spring ; Next to the Lady Mary This beer-bowl of Canary.
I'll pledge't a carouse were it ten ; When Charles his thoughts are eased, And his great heart appeased,
We'll drink the sun up again.
1 From " Merry Drollery."
