SONG OF THE PRINCE OF ORANGE LODGE, 566.
Air—"A famous man was Robin Hood."

A famous man was he who braved
In battle field each Popish plan,
And when her banner, freedom, waved,
The Prince of Orange led the van;
His dauntless courage France did own,
And Spain and Holland raised his fame;
And when her trumpet fame had blown,
"The Prince of Orange" was the theme.

For a famous man was he who braved
In battle field each Popish plan,
And when her banner, freedom, waved,
The Prince of Orange led the van.

And when he came to freedom's shore,
To England—Sovereign of the waves,
He heard amidst the cannons' roar,
That Britons never should be slaves.
But when he came to Erin's Isle,
The bold and true did round him join,
Who was it conquered Popish guile?
"The Prince of Orange" at the Boyne.

For a famous man, &c.

Come, brothers, let the social board,
Have one enthusiastic bowl;
Let's pass the toast with one accord,
'Twill warm the heart, and cheer the soul.
"The Prince of Orange Lodge" are we,
Be this our toast with loud encore,
Come, drink it, boys, with three times three—
"The Prince of Orange" evermore!

For a famous man, &c.


The Orange Melodist, Original Orange Songs, With Occasional Verses and an Appendix, Containing Copious Explanatory Notes, Brother William Archer, Oldbrige lodge 597 (Dublin: Brother J. Kirkwood, Printer, 13, Upper Ormond-quay, 1852).

Yeah, but the songs ARE of historical interest, and along with rebel songs, should be preserved and sung - with explanation - to show how the divide came about, progressed and led to what we have today.
