THE FOUR DAYS FIGHT 63
What, must we still wait on your leasure, or is not your money yet
coyn'd? We mean to have some of your treasure for no children of us you
shall find : We scorn for to wait on such puppies, we have other fish for to
fry : Then hang up your States, your masters and mates, that sent you . to seas for to dye.
Then leave of your jeering and mocking, and murmure at home
and repine, 'Tis better then for to be knocking upon the salt ocean brine : Then cast up your caps and be merry, brave English boyes let
them fiye, And pray for King Charles and his navy, and let the proud
ENGLAND'S TRYUMPH, AND HOLLANDS DOWNFALL; OR, THE SECOND ROYAL VICTORY.
Obtain'd upon the Hollanders fleet, in a sea-fight, by the King of Great Brittains Royal Navy, under the conduct of his Highness Prince Rupert, and His Grace, George Duke of Albemarle; as it was heroically fought, and undoubtfully disputed on the 1, 2d, 3d and 4th of June, 1666.
To the tune of, A Fig for France and Holland too, etc.
String up your hearts, and tune your throats, With merry and triumphant notes; Send sorrow from your souls away, You never had more cause for joy : The creeple may cast away his crutch, And dance the downfal of the Dutch. Great Brittain now may take it's ease, King Charles is Soveraign of the seas.
