HERE'S A HEALTH UNTO HIS MAJESTY

Music: Jeremy Savile

Here's a health unto his majesty,
With a fa la la la la la la,
Confusion to his enemies,
With a fa la la la la la la.
And he who would not pledge his health
We wish him neither wit nor wealth
Nor yet a rope to hang himself.

With a fa la la la la la la la la la
With a fa la la la la la la.

Here's a health unto his majesty,
With a free and loving loyalty,
Now who would not his goblet drain
We wish him neither joy nor gain
To fill an empty purse again.

The traitor who will not comply,
A traitor's death then let him die,
And he that will not pledge the King,
We wish for him no better thing
Then that he lack what now we sing:

(repeat first verse)

As promised, these are the original lyrics from the Penguin Song Book, ed. Leslie Woodgate, pub. 1951. No attribution of the lyrics is included in the book.
