Heard eye's the Tree o'seven rance,
And what ye what's the name o't?
Around it a the patriots dance -
Wheel Europe kens the fame o't?

A prison built by kings, man,
When superstitions hellish brood
Kept Trace in leading-string, man
Есть дерево в Париже, брат,
Под сень его густую
Друзья отечества спешат
Где ныне у его ствола
Свободный люд толпится,
Вчера Бастилия была
Всей Франции темницею
