To your threats of proud invadings,

While your movements ye prolong, Frenchmen ! Such our serenadings !

Echo shall resound this strain :-
BRITAIN ON a Rock is seated-
Her's the Empire of the Main !"

Her canting, philanthropic voice,
Those crocodile effusious !
P'raetis'd upon the Rights of Man,
By every Gallic Charlatan,

With magical delusions.
