Subject: Anti-Rebellion Song

Parts of this song were printed in the Cobourg Star many years ago. Can anyone tell me how complete or how accurate this version is? I have no idea what the original tune was. I've been using "The Girl I Left Behind Me".

Now that the rebellion's o'er
Let each true Briton sing
Long live the Queen in health and peace
And may each rebel swing.

And good Sir Francis Head may he
With peace and health be crowned
May earthly happiness to him
For ever more abound.

And prosper now our own fair land
Those sons so brave and true
A heavy debt of loyalty
Does England owe to you.

But as for those poor Yankee lads
Well may they pine and fret
For by Sir Harry they will have
To pay us all a debt.

And as for Mac there's one last step
To end his life of evil
And may he take that one last step
From gibbet to the Devil.

If you Google 'Let each True Briton Sing' you'll find many references to this song and to the rebellion in Upper Canada. Here's a start:Rebellion
