Original text and translations
Room for th'express, at length here it comes,
Lim'ricks our own, be it known to all Grums.
Hark! the Guns of the Tower ring it in peals,
We'll drink round the Bonfires, Huzza to the Bells.
To our conquering Army loud Praises let's sing,
And now Monsieur French man have at you next Spring.
