Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: Is Charleroi’s siege come too?‥


Is Charleroi’s siege come too?
who would a thought it?
then the rumours was false
that Lewis had bought it,
then charge all your guns, boys,
as high as they can be,
with the briskest Champagne,
rammed down with Nantes brandy,
let engineer Vauban shoot the devil and all,
yet his marshal shan’t dance at old Maintenon’s ball.
