Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: “Clear the course, make room I say,‥


“Clear the course, make room I say,
now they are off and Gimcrack makes the play,”
“I’ll bet the odds done, Sir, done with you,
Squirrel keeps near him and he’ll win it, too,”
“Here’s even money, for a hundred, done,
now Gimcrack, now or never, now he has won,”
“I’ll take my oath that Squirrel won the prize,
damn me, whoever says he lost it lies.”
