OIXCK our foes to invade us have long been £-3 preparing,

'Tis clear they consider we've something worth sharing,

Ami for th.ii mean to visit our shore; It behoves us, however, with spirit to meet 'em; And tbo* 'twill be nothing uncommon to beat 'em,

W'c must try how they'll take it once more.

So fill,fill your grasses,and be this the toosf given,

Here'sEngland for ever,thc laud,boys,w e live in.

Here's a health to our tars on the wild ocean

raging,. Perhaps even now some broadsides are exchanging, . M e'll on shipboard and join in the fight; And when with the toe we are firmly engaging, Till the fire of our guns lulls the sea in its raging, On our country we'll think with delight.

On that throne where once Alfred in glory was

seated, Long, long may ourKing by his people be greeted,

O, to guard him we'll be of one mind! Way Religion, Law, Order, be strictly defended, And continue the blessings they first were intended, In union the nation to bind.

Says I to sweetheart Poll,4

If ever I come back,
We'll laugh and sing, tol de rol loi,

If not, remember Jack.

T&fortin smooth and rough,

The wind would chop and veer,
Till hard knocks I'd nab'd enough',

On board of a privateer!
Propt with a wooden peg,

Poll, I thought would bid me pack j
So was forc'd, d'ye see, to beg,

And it was, pray remember Jack.

I ax'd as folks hove by,

And show'd my wooden pin;
Young girls would sometimes sigh,

And gaping lubbers grin.
In vain I'd often bawl,

My hopes were ta'en aback, And my share of coppers smalt> i So pray remember Jack.

One day my lockers bare,

And toggs all tattered grown,
I twigs'd a pinnace fair,

Well rigg'd, a-bearing down-.
'Twas Poll, she look'd so spruce,

"What! thus," says she, " come back V My tongue forgot it's use,

And pray remember Jack.

What matters much to prate!

She'd shiners sav'd a few;
Soon I became her mate,

Warnt Poll a sweetheart true? -1%,'' Then

But hark!—on the silence of night,

My Adda's accents I hear!
And, mournful, beneath the wan light,

I see her lov'd image appear;
O, Maraton!—haste thee, she cries,

Here the reign of oppression is o'er}
The tyrant is robb'd of his prize,

And Adtla sorrows no more.

SEE the dawn how it rises, in golden array, While the horn sounds the summons to join iu the chase; Hark, the dogs, with their horses, now weleome the day, When with sport and true concord we hunters embrace. The hounds are abroad, see the breaking of day; From the cover, the cover, unkennel the fox, Attend ro the cry, hark away, hark away, We'll bound qver mountains and rocks.

While we sweep o'er the hills, or the mountains

a.-cend,

Or through rapid rivers our steeds swiftly guide,

jNn dangerwe fear that can hunting attend,

True courage was ne'er to a sportsman denied.

The hounds are abrtmd, &c.

Then lcavc,for a while, the soft arms of your fair; SeeAiu'ii.a,to tempt you, has nature display 'd; The sports of Diana the morning must share, Then to friendship and love let due tribute he paid.

The hounds are abroad, &c.

': LET

T ET bards elate of Sue and Kate, -ULi And Moggy take their fill, O; And pleas'd rehearse in jingling verse,

The Lass of Richmond Hill, O,

The Lass of Richmond Hill, O.
A lass more bright, my am'rous flight,

Impell'd by love's fond workings,
Shall fondly sing, like any thing,
'Lis charnung Peggy Perkins.

Peggy Perkini) &c.

Some men compare the fav'rite fair

To every thing in nature;
Her eyes divine, are suns that shine,

And so on with each feature.
Leave, leave, ye fools, these hackney'd rules,

And all such subtile quirkings;
Sun, moon, and stars, are all a farce,

Compar'd to Peggy Perkins.

Peggy Perkins, &c.

Each twanging dart that through my heart

From Cupid's bow has morrie'd,
Were it a tree—why I should be

For all the world a forest!
Five hundred fops with shrugs and hop?,

And leers, and smiles, and smirkjngs,
Most willing she would leave for me—

Oh what a Peggy Perkins!

Peggy Perkins, &c.
