Excerpt from The Sword Dances of Northern England: Songs and Dance Airs

But we come just to take a week's pleasure, to welcome the incoming year. My lads, they are all fit for action, with spirits and courage so bold; They are born Of a noble extraction, their fathers were heroes Of Old.

Now this is the son Of brave Elliott, the first youth that enters my ring; SO proudly rejoice I to tell it, he fought for his country and king.

When the Spaniards besieged Gibraltar, bold Elliott defended the place, Soon caused them their plans for to alter; some died -others fell in disgrace.

Now my next handsome youth that does enter is a boy, there are very few such; His father beat that great De Winter, and defeated the fleet Of the Dutch.

His father was the great Lord Duncan, who played the Dutch ne'er sucha prank, That they fled from their harbours, ran funkin', and they fled to the great Dogger Bank.
