THE ROYAL TRIUMPH
THE ROYAL TRIUMPH; OR, THE UNSPEAKABLE JOY OF THE THREE KINGDOMS FOR THE GLORIOUS VICTORY OVER THE FRENCH BY THE ENGLISH AND DUTCH FLEETS, TO THE JOY AND COMFORT OF ALL TRUE SUBJECTS.
Tune is, Let the soldiers rejoyce.
Valiant Protestant boys,
Here's millions of joys And triumph now bro .... ught from the ocean ;
For the French mighty fleet
Now is shatter'd and beat, And destruction, destruction, boys, will be their portion.
Here's the Jacobite crew—
Now believe me, 'tis true— Invited the Fre .... nch to this nation ;
Who was crossing the seas,
With the Teague Rapparees, True cut-throats, true cut-throats, upon my salvation.
But, alas! they did find
A true Protestant wind, Which five weeks or Ion .... ger it lasted,
Till the most royal fleet,
And the Dutch both compleat, They with thunder, with thunder this project soon blasted.
On the nineteenth of May
The French fleet made way, To make of our con .... rage a tryal;
They suppos'd we'd ne'er fight,
But they were'nt in the right, For we show'd them, we show'd them we were true and loyal.
Our admirals bold,
With their brave hearts of gold, They fell on like bra . . . . ve sons of thunder;
And their chain-shot let fly,
As the fleet they drew nigh, Where they tore them, and rent them, and tore them asunder.
