The Duke sounds to Horse Boys, let's mount and away.
Rouze up English Courage, we can't lose the Day.
Remember the feats by our Ancestors done,
where Englishmen fight to be sure the French run;

Rash Tallards surpriz'd, to behold us so near,
Bavaria's old Courage is sunk in despair.
Lead on the Attack, then our Friends shall come after,
we'll enliven their Spirits, by our Enemies slaughter.

'tis for you brave Allies, this great march we took on us,
fall back noble Germans' and only look on us,

we'll show you how easy the Conquest is made,
three English 'Huzzahs’ strike the Frenchmen all dead.
