D2 | d2 dc B2 AG | AB cd B2 AB | c2 E2 F2 G2 | A3 G G4 || % W:What Booker can prognosticate concerning King or Kingdom's fate; W:I think myself to be as wise, as he that most looks in the Skies; W:My skill goes beyond the depth of the Pond, or River in the greatest rain; W:By these which I can tell, that all things will be well - when the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:There is no Astrologer, then I say, can search more deep in this then I, W:To give you a reason from the Stars, what causeth peace, or civil Wars: W:The man in the Moon, may wear out his shoone, in running after Charles his Wain, W:But all to no end, for the times they will mend - when the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Though for a time you may see White-Hall, with cob-webs hanging over the wall, W:Instead of silk, and silver brave, as formerly it used to have: W:In every Roome, the sweet perfume, delightful for that Princely train, W:The which you shall see when the time it shall be - that the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Full fourty years the Royal Crown, hath been his Fathers and his own, W:And I am sure ther's none but he hath right to that soveraignity: W:Then who better may the Scepter to sway, then he that hath such luck right to reign: W:The hopes of your peace, for the war will then cease - when the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Till then upon Ararat's hill, my hopes shal cast her Anchor still; W:Until I see some peaceful Dove, bring home the branch, which I do love; W:Still will I wait till the waters abate. which most disturbs my troubled brain, W:For I'll never rejoyce, till I hear that voice - that the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Oxford and Cambridge shall agree, crowned with honour and dignitee, W:Learned men shall then take place, and bad men silenced with disgrace: W:They s' know it then to be a shameful strain, that hath so long disturbed their brain. W:For I can surely tell, that all things shal go well - when the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Church Government shall settled be, and then I hope we shall agree; W:Without their help whose high-brain zeal, have long disturbed our Commonweal: W:Greed out of date, and Coblers that do prate, of Wars that stil disturb'd their brain, W:The which you shall see when the time it shall be - that the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Tho many men are much in debt, and many Shops are to be let; W:A golden time is drawing near, men shal take Shops to hold their Ware: W:And then all our Trade shal florish alamode, the which ere long we shal obtain: W:By the which I can tell, all things will be well - when the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:Maidens shall enjoy their Mates, and honest men their lost estates, W:Women shal have what they do lacke, their husbands who are coming back. W:When the Wars have an end, then I and my friend, all Subjects freedom shall obtain, W:By the which I can tell, all things will be well - when we enjoy sweet peace again. W:. W:Though people now walk in great fear, alongst the Countrye every where, W:Theeves shal then tremble at the Law, And justice shal keep them in awe: W:The frenches shal flee with their treacherie, and the King's foes ashamed remain, W:The which you shal see, when the time it shal be that the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:The Parliament must willing be, that all the world may plainly see, W:How they do labour still for peace, that now these bloody Wars may cease: W:For they will gladly spend their lives, to defend the King in all his right to reign, W:So then I can tell all things will be well when we enjoy sweet peace again. W:. W:When all these things to pass shall come, then farewell Musket Pike and Drum, W:The Lamb shal with the Lyon feed, which were a happy time indeed; W:O let us pray, we may see the day, that peace may govern in his name, W:For then I can tell all things will be well - when the King comes home in peace again. W:. W:GOD SAVE THE KING, AMEN" % % % % %
