Let lordlings exult in their titles and treasure,

Where courts and where grandeur extend their proud blaze.

And proud city beauties may listen with pleasure,

While poets as venal reecho their praise;

No o shall now boast of the city or paace,

Bedecked with their beauties, a gay gild-
ed train; -
For now there's a fairer adorns our green
valleys— - *
'Tis Mary, sweet Mary, the flower of the
Main.
