Lyrics

1
King William was King James’s son, all the royal races run,
On his breast he wore a star, pointing to the Prussian War.

2
Choose in the east, choose in the west, choose the one you love the best,
If he’s not here to take our place, choose another with all your grace.

3
Down on this carpet you shall kneel, while the grass grows round your feet.
Salute your bride and kiss her sweet, rise again upon your feet.
