Six gentlemen upon the road

Thus seeing Gilpin fly,
With post-boy scamp'ring in the rear,

They rais'd the hue and cry:

Stop thief! stop thief !-a highwayman !

Not one of them was mute ;
And all and each that pass'd that way

Did join in the pursuit.

And now the turnpike gates again
Flew
open

in short space,
The toll-men thinking, as before,

That Gilpin rode a race.

And so he did, and won it too,

For he got first to town,
Nor stopp'd till where he had got up

He did again get down.

Now

Now let us sing, Long live the king,

And Gilpin, long live he; And when he next doth ride abroad,

May I be there to see!
