Room! room! my gallant boys,
Give me room to rhyme,
I'll show you some activity
About the Christmas time,
Active young and active old,
You never saw the likes of me
Act on stage before.
If you don't like to believe me
"Enter in King George"
And he'll soon clear the way.


Yes! Yes! here comes me King George
From England I have sprung,
Many battles I have fought,
And many I have won.
If you don't like to believe me
Enter in Belsy Bob
and he'll soon clear the way.
