"LIKE WELSHMEN WE'LL STAND UP FOR PEACE AND GOOD ORDER." Come, my honest lads all, let us join in a song, For honest lads ever have light hearts and gay; We belong to no Chartists, no traitorous throng, We join with no rebels in murderous fray But we work for the wives and the children we love, We honour the Queen, and we praise God above And though Chartists and traitors come over our border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order. While some at the pot-house are swigging their beer, And bawling about their p,olitical rights,— While some are preparing with pike and with spear To quench the bright flames of true liberty's lights,— We know that kings reign through the great KING of kings, Creator of all men, disposer of things: And though Chartists and traitors are over our border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order. What's the ballot to us, who have nothing to hide ? For 'tis only a bad deed that should not be seen When we all become rogues, and the law we've defied, From the gaze of the world then our misdeeds we'll screen. For an honest poor man, though he's shabbily drest, May hold up his head all along with the best; So though Chartists and traitors come over our border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order. Then away with all politics, squabbles. and rowfI; And, honest men, still keep our hearts light and gay If we listen but once to these bad men, who knows But they '11 lead us to join in some murderous fray ? No! we'll work for the wives and the children we love, We'll honour the Queen, and we'll praise God above; And though Chartists and traitors come over our I border, Like Welshmen we'll stand up for peace and good order.
