Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Song: ’Mongst other roses thorns grow thick, but...

by William Boyce . For Three voices , in G major


’Mongst other roses thorns grow thick, but Moll’s a rose without a prick,
I went the other day to woo, says she, “My dear, it will not do,”
then since she scorns her am’rous swain, still as she was may she remain.
