(IV)

The most cowardly action I ever did witness
When the New Ross brass band to the barracks did come
I saw a policeman catch the horse by the bridle
And dash his rifle right thro' the head of the drum
(V)
Our American cousins crossed over the Atlantic to see what sort of laws were in old Granuaile.
O Lord of Anger! they nearly went frantic
When they heard that James Somers got ten months in gaol.
(VI)
The dark clouds are breaking
You'll soon bid farewell to your sorrow and woe
In a few days more you'll hear Gladstone's voice speaking
Saying "Jimmy, you miser, jack your bundle and go."
