Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: Dragoons have a care,‥


Dragoons have a care,
here’s a health to the Czar,
we’ll all do the mighty Rus reason,
examine your cup,
that you drink it all up,
if you leave but one drop, ’tis high treason,
would you drink like a Rus
while you take it off thus?
still with pepper improve your weak brandy,
and then to be just,
to give it a gust,
still let nitre supply sugar candy,
thus armed let it blow,
let it hail, let it snow,
it will ne’er make our hero look thin Sir,
warm without with the hair
of his dear brother bear
and the cordial I wot on within Sir.
