Happy Was The Man - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

« The Fifth Of November

Devil, Pope and Pretender »

Happy was the man
And happy was the day,
That caught Guy
Going to his play,
With a dark lantern
And a brimstone match
ready for the prime to touch.

As I was going through the dark entry
I spied the devil
Stand back! Stand back!
Queen Mary’s daughter.
Put your hand in your pocket,
And give us some money
To rekindle the bonfire. Hurrah.

1849 Brand`s Pop Antia
