Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Item: Epitaph

by Mr Atterbury . For Four voices, in C minor

Song: Here lie as dead as any stones old gaffer Thomas...

Here lie as dead as any Stones as any Stones old Gaffer Thomas Gaffer Thomas and his Dame,
Light be the Earth upon their Bones for fear they catch they catch their usual flame, for
Gaffer often pres'd her Bones and kindled up and kindled up and kindled upon am'rous flame, and
she for him wou'd hoard up Stones to prove herself to prove herself a busy busy Dame.
