Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Item: A Catch upon Mr Young & his Son

by Dr C├Žsar . For Four voices, in G major

Song: You scrapers that want a good fiddle well...

You Scrapers that want a good Fiddle well strung, you must go to ye Man that is old while he's YOUNG. But if this same Fiddle you fain wou'd play bold, you must go to his Son who'll be YOUNG when he's old. There's old YOUNG, and young YOUNG, both Men of Renown, old sells, & young plays the best FIDDLE in Town. Young & old live together, and may they live long, Young to play an Old Fiddle, Old to sell a New SONG
