A Borgens a borgen, che hard long agoe
bee merry ond a vig vor woe,
Zing gleare, zing zweet and zure,
ower Zong zhall bee but zhort
Muzicke foice, ond daunzing
O tis salient zport,
then let this burden zweetly zung be ztill,
A Borgens a Borgen bee’t good be it ill,
A Borgens a Borgen, vor weale or vor woe,
So ever led dis bleasing Borden goe.
