Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: Here’s that will challenge all the fair,‥


Here’s that will challenge all the fair,
come buy my nuts and damsons, my Bergamot pear,
here’s the whore of Babylon, the devil and the Pope,
the girl is just a going on the rope,
here’s Dives and Lazarus, and the world’s creation,
here’s the Dutch woman, the like’s not in the nation,
here is the booth where the tall Dutch maid is,
here are bears that dance like any ladies,
“Tota, tota tot!” goes the little penny trumpet,
here’s your Jacob Hall that can jump it,
sound, trumpet, sound, a silver spoon and fork,
come here’s your dainty pig and pork.
