414. Impromptu on Dumourier's Desertion of the French Republican Army

 YOU’RE welcome to Despots, Dumourier;
You’re welcome to Despots, Dumourier:
 How does Dampiere do?
 Ay, and Bournonville too?
Why did they not come along with you, Dumourier?


I will fight France with you, Dumourier;
I will fight France with you, Dumourier;
 I will fight France with you,
 I will take my chance with you;
By my soul, I’ll dance with you, Dumourier.
Then let us fight about, Dumourier; Then let us fight about, Dumourier; Then let us fight about, Till Freedom’s spark be out, Then we’ll be d—d, no doubt, Dumourier.
