I. MARCHING ALONG.



I.



Kentish Sir Byng stood for his King,

Bidding the crop-headed Parliament swing:

And, pressing a troop unable to stoop

And see the rogues flourish and honest folk droop,

Marched them along, fifty-score strong,

Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song.



II.



God for King Charles! Pym and such carles

To the Devil that prompts 'em their treasonous parles!

Cavaliers, up!Lips from the cup,

Hands from the pasty, nor bite take nor sup

Till you're---



CHORUS.---Marching along, fifty-score strong,

Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song.



III.



Hampden to hell, and his obsequies' knell

Serve Hazelrig, Fiennes, and young Harry as well!

England, good cheer!Rupert is near!

Kentish and loyalists, keep we not here



CHORUS.---Marching along, fifty-score strong,

Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song?



IV.



Then, God for King Charles!Pym and his snarls

To the Devil that pricks on such pestilent carles!

Hold by the right, you double your might;

So, onward to Nottingham, fresh for the fight,



CHORUS.---March we along, fifty-score strong,

Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song!







II. GIVE A ROUSE.



I.



King Charles, and who'll do him right now?

King Charles, and who's ripe for fight now?

Give a rouse: here's, in hell's despite now,

King Charles!



II.



Who gave me the goods that went since?

Who raised me the house that sank once?

Who helped me to gold I spent since?

Who found me in wine you drank once?



CHORUS.---King Charles, and who'll do him right now?

King Charles, and who's ripe for fight now?

Give a rouse: here's, in hell's despite now,

King Charles!



III.



To whom used my boy George quaff else,

By the old fool's side that begot him?

For whom did he cheer and laugh else,

While Noll's damned troopers shot him?



CHORUS.---King Charles, and who'll do him right now?

King Charles, and who's ripe for fight now?

Give a rouse: here's, in hell's despite now,

King Charles!







III.BOOT AND SADDLE.



I.



Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!

Rescue my castle before the hot day

Brightens to blue from its silvery grey,



CHORUS.---Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!



II.



Ride past the suburbs, asleep as you'd say;

Many's the friend there, will listen and pray

``God's luck to gallants that strike up the lay---



CHORUS.---``Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!''



III.



Forty miles off, like a roebuck at bay,

Flouts Castle Brancepeth the Roundheads' array:

Who laughs, ``Good fellows ere this, by my fay,



CHORUS.---``Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!''



IV.



Who?My wife Gertrude; that, honest and gay,

Laughs when you talkof surrendering, ``Nay!

``I've better counsellors; what counsel they?



CHORUS.---``Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!''
