Song: “I’ll back the mealy grey for five or more,”...

by Thomas Arne . A Catch for Four voices , in F major


“I’ll back the mealy grey for five or more,” “I’ll back him for a score,” “The red for fifty,”
“Here’s six to four,” “I’ll bet you two to one,” “His throat is cut!” “I pound him, done Sir, done,”
“Huzzah! He’ll win it still,” “I’ll take the red for fifty,” “See, the grey is dead,”
“Come Sir, your money,” “What! You did not lay,” “Basket him, I say.”
