Orpheus Galedonius.
For our lang biding here.
'HEN we came to London Towrij
We di'eam*d of Gowd in Gowpings here^
^nd ran tin! y ran up and down.
In rifing Stocks to buy a Skair :
We daftly thought to row in Rowth,
But for our Daffine pay'd right dear ;
The Lave will fare the war in trouth:>
For our lang biding here.
But when we fand our Purfes toonij
And dainty Stocks began to fa'.
We hang our Lugs, and wi' a Gloom^
Cjirn'd at Stoqk-jobbing ane and a'.
|f we gang near the South-Sea}\o\x^t^
The Whilly-Wha's will grip ye r gear^
Syne a* the Lave will fare the war^
Fpr Quy lang biding here.
