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?        5
 
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.        10
 
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.        15
