Tune of Duke of Lorain and the Princess Royal.
Let every loyal Briton sing Prosperity to George our King; He that refuses let him swing, As many has done before him ; But I shall raise my chearfull voice, Let Englishmen with me rejoice, For valiant Knowls, huzza ! brave boys, The sailor does admire.
Hispaniola and Louis Port
Afforded Englishmen brave sport.
Brave news, brave news for the British Court,
Those places both are taken ;
We've taken Pondicherry too.
Another scene appears in view :
Jago de Cuba soon must rue,
If I am not mistaken.
It is such valiant acts as these
That makes Mounsieur cry out for peace :
Morblue hostilities pray cease
And I'll return all Flanders !
Let all.true Biitons fill their bowls,
A health to that hero Admiral Knowls,
A health to our Brittish sailors bold
That fought with this brave comander.
Another glass to the sailors brave
That with him such proofs of valour gave ;
Confusion to the rebel slave
That does refuse to drink it!
Let all true Britons fill their bowls :
A health to hero Admiral Knowls,
A health to our British sailors bold
That fought with this brave commander.
