SONG. The CAVALIER's CATCH.

I.
DID you see this Cup of Liquor,
How invitingly it looks;
'Twill make a Lawyer prattle quicker,
And a Scholar burn his Books:
'Twill make a Cripple for to Caper,
And a Dumb Man clearly Sing;
'Twill make a Coward draw his Rapier,
Here's a Health to Iames our King.
II.
If that here be any Round-head,
That refuse this Health to pledge
I wish he then may be confounded,
Underneath some rotten Hedge,
May the French Disease o'er-take him,
And upon hs Face appear,
And his Wife a Cuckold make him,
By some Iovial Cavalier.
