32 Songs Compleat,
So that turning the Jest,
They agreed it at last,
That nought from the Presence did come,
But the noise that they heard,

Since none but the doer could tell,
So that hushing up the Shame,
The Beef-eater bore the blame,
And the Queen, God be prais'd, din'd well ;
With a hum, hum, hum, hum.

To right both the Weak and the Strong,
Prepare to redress
A poor Beef-eater's Case,
Who has had a most damnable wrong ;
By a hum, &c.
Strange Jarring I know,
'Twixt the High- Church and Low,
Does your dear valu'd hours ingross,
Yet mine is such a case,
That I beg it may take place,
As soon as the Speaker is chose,
With a hum, &c.
