Waterloo – broadsides outside London Poor boney All you people who live at home Waterloo – broadsides outside London Poor boney All you people who live at home easy, And free from the trials of war Never knowing the dangers of battle, But safe with your family secure Know you the long scythe of destruction, Has been sweeping the nation all round And it never yet cut with the keenness That it did on the eighteenth of june Burstow had the song from Jim Shoebridge, a Sussex Waterloo veteran According to Burstow, Shoebridge “left a leg in Belgium”

Ye people at home who live easy And free from the riots of war Ye people at home who live easy And free from the riots of war Let thought take a place in your bosoms And sigh for the sorrows of war Ah! Lang has the scythe of destruction Been sweeping the nations around But ne’er did it cut with such keenness As on the great eighteenth of June While Britain, as bold as a lion Made all shake around with her roar She conquer’d the legions against her Till there was to conquer no more But great was the tumult on both sides And great was the number cut down And many a heart will remember With sorrow the eighteenth of June Let England rejoice in heroes Both Britain and France they have lang been Contending for who’ll have the sway, And Ireland in great wellington But brawling may turn into mourning, But Scotia may mourn without ceasing Her best and her bravest are gone! To think on this terrible day. Ye ladies who’s ladies are yonder Ten thousands of good hearted mortals Here fell midst the awfu’ platoons Gae ilk ane, and buy a black gown A thousand it is to a hunder And sung a farewell to their sorrows They’ve fallen on the eighteenth of June Upon the great eighteenth of June Ye sops, and ye fine gaudy mortals First France, with her ord’nary fury, Whose life’s like the mist of the morn Did think the allies to o’erwhelm An hour in this terrible conflict But ah! She forgot in the hurry Would told you what for you was born That Britain did stand at the helm The groans of the dying and wounded And what a sad heart sirs, had bonnie Would send though your bosoms a stoun! To tak now instead of a crown You would learn’d to have danced a new figure A canter frae Brussels to Paris At the ball on the eighteenth of June Lamenting the eighteenth of June
