The Walls too were order'd
By Parliament Frown:
But General Monck, [...]as pleas'd

And found them Deluded,
But Englands great ioy,

For He's fild, &c.

Lest the Members Excluded,

Wich his Newcastle Barge,
Than to see the Old Parliament full, ful, full
Than to see the Old Parliament full.
The Aldermen Grave,
And the Commons o'th City,
Imprisoned were,
The mor [...] is the pity,
But Genral Monck said,
That I will acquit ye,
For the Parliament now shall be ful, ful, ful
For the Parliament now shall be full.

THe Parliament now will
come into their Géers
For secl [...]ded Prin [...]

Has furnisht the Nation
With Parliament Arguments,
Of the old Fashion,
And would have bo [...]h
Commons, and Lords in this nation,
To fill up, &c.
Our brave General Monck,
We bound are to thank,
The Honest Lord Fairfax,
Has plaid (to) his Prank,
No thanks to be given,
To the Rump nor the Shank,
To fill up, &c,
Had the City ne'r moved,
Nor the Prentices strove,
They'd lost their Old Charter,
But Monck had a love,
To challenge the Grand Ones,
Which Mischiefs old move,
And so fil'd up the, &c.
But now our brave Members,
Have taken their seats,
The very first day,
They did Honorable feats,
For the good of this Nation,
Which will prove no cheats,
To fill up, &c.
The Citizens ith Tower,
At Liberty they have set,
A more gallanter déed,
Was never known yet,
Then the setting them frée,
And th' brave Prentices to quit,
For the Parliament now shall be ful, ful, ful
For the Parliament now shall be full.
Now to God let us pray,
That all may be mended,
That fréedom may flourish,
And all strife may be ended,
For Generall Monck,
Hath us hugely befriended,
In filling the Parliament full, full, full,
In filling the Parliament full.
