30 Songs Compleat,
But they would not swear,
For the Parties were there,
Of the High Church and the Low,
Who from a mighty Zeal,
For good o' th' commonweal
Might let some of their Bagpipes blow ;
With a hum, &c.
At this when heard,
Late Comptroler strokt his Beard,
And declar'd with an Antique bow,
He tho' of some nothing knew,
Yet he would vouch for two,
Himself, and his Brother yohn How ;
For the hum, &c.
For the Squire was well bred,
And his Key might have had,
But refus'd for an old State Trick,
And that he that had made Sport,
With Places of the Court,
Now resolv'd upon Wharton's white stick ;
With a hum, &c.
When this was done,
And the Crime not yet known,
Came a Law Peer to plead the Case,
How they had no intent,
To affront the Government
Nor had he to regain the Mace ;
With a hum, &c.
A Garter and Star,
Next censure did bear,
Who for all he lookt so high,
And carry 'd it so great,
In Intrigues of the State,
Yet might condescend to let fly
A hum, &c.
