270. Song—The Captain’s Lady
 
 
Chorus.—O mount and go, mount and make you ready,
O mount and go, and be the Captain’s lady.
 
WHEN the drums do beat, and the cannons rattle,
Thou shalt sit in state, and see thy love in battle:
When the drums do beat, and the cannons rattle,        5
Thou shalt sit in state, and see thy love in battle.
          O mount and go, &c.
 
When the vanquish’d foe sues for peace and quiet,
To the shades we’ll go, and in love enjoy it:
When the vanquish’d foe sues for peace and quiet,        10
To the shades we’ll go, and in love enjoy it.
          O mount and go, &c.
