Most everyone is filled with joy
About a certain baby boy;
Of course, some anti-Royalists
May fume and rant and shake their fists,
But they are of no consequence
Beside those thrilled at a new Prince!
The Duke and Duchess, on this night
Seem to be doing all that’s right
To bond with their new baby child
And keep the press from going wild;
So from a ‘Colony’ afar –
Fal la la la-la la la –
Here’s a health unto His Majesty,
The some-time-future King to be!

HERE’S A HEALTH
By Thomas Jordan (1613—1685)
Here’s a health unto his Majesty,
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la ;
Confusion to his enemies,
With a fal-la-la-la-la-la-la.
And he that will not drink his health,
I wish him neither wit nor wealth
Nor yet a rope to hang himself,
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la –
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
