Come here`s a good Health to Prince Lewis The Brave,
The Prince that has buried the Turks in the Save,
For drinkers of Water a Suitable grave,

Both the old and new Turk, are here overthrown
now my jolly Comrades have at the fair Town,
with our Bombs of old Hock will we batter it down,

the Danube's our slave once again,
a greater than Xerxes has thrown in his Chain,
and the Heydelburg Tun shall close the Campaign.
