A Song Sung to the King and Queen upon Sir John Moor's being Chosen Lord Mayor.

I.
ALl Hail to great Caesar, Lov'd Monarch,
That Three Mighty Kingoms dost sway,
All Hail Gloriana,
The Lands Arcana,
The Brightest Planet in Loves Milky way.
II.
Long, long have the story's of Plottings and
Treasons
Assisted our fears,
The Whigs and the Tories in Mutiny joyn,
Like a new Civil War:
But now Ignoramus
No more shall shame us,
Dissolv'd and quell'd by a Loyal Lord Mayor.
III.
No more shall the furies possess the dull Crowd
With Distraction and Care,
No more shall the Jurys excuse 'em High Treason
To show what they dare:
No more shall Professors,
Affront the Addressors
Since London now has a Loyal Lord Mayor.
Page  11IV.
Then welcome Great Caesar, and welcome the Pretor
That now rules the Chair,
Our hearts with a pleasure do Crown the swift Minutes
Of this happy year:
For 'tis strange in the City,
The more is the pity,
To see, to see a Loyal Lord Mayor.
