Amid his many works we came across this ballad on our very own Duke of Brunswick, and well, as its Burns Day today, we thought we'd paste it on our news page!
On the Duke of Brunswick’s Breaking up his Camp and the defeat of the Austrian, by Dumourier, November 1792 A Tippling Ballad
truce with commotions,
And new-fangled notions,
A bumper, I trust you'll allow;
Here's George our good king,
And Charlotte his queen,
And lang may they ring as they dow, dow, dow,
And may they ring as they dow.
By Robert Burns
