Six gentlemen upon the road
Thus seeing Gilpin fly,
They rais'd the hue and cry:
Stop thief ! stop thief!-a highwayman!
Not one of them was mute;
Did join in the pursuit,
And now the turnpike gates again
Flew open in short space,
That Gilpin rode a race,
And so he did, and won it too,
first to town,
got Nor stopp'd till where he had got up
He did again get down.
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!
