Tower Warders When our gallant Norman foes We may succeed - who can foretell? I have a song to sing, O!
Wouldst thou earn an hundred crowns? For thou wouldst make a most tender and loving wife Elsie faints in Fairfax's arms How fares thy pretty charge, Elsie Maynard?
Elsie, I have loved thee these two days Hail the valiant fellow who did this deed of derring-do! It is purely a matter of skill, which all may attain if they will Oh, thoughtless crew! Ye know not what ye do!
