Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Song: Here are the rarities of the whole fair,...

by John Blow . For Four voices , in D minor


Here are the rarities of the whole fair,
Pimperle Pimp, and the wise dancing mare,
here’s valiant St George and the dragon, a farce,
a girl of fifteen with strange moles on her arse,
here is Vienna besieged, a rare thing,
and here’s Punchinello, shown thrice to the King,
ladies masked to the cloisters repair,
but there will be no raffling, a pox take the Mayor.
