SONG. AIR--"THE VICAR AND MOSES."

SONG. AIR--"THE VICAR AND MOSES."

Do you know Doctor Nott,
With a crook in his lot,
Who several years since tried to dish up
A neat Codicil
To the Princess's Will,
That made Doctor Nott not a Bishop!

So the Doctor, being found
A little unsound
In his doctrine, at least as a teacher,
And kick'd from one stool
As a knave and a fool,
Has mounted another as preacher!

In that gown, like a skin
With no lion within,
He still for the bench would be driving,
And roareth away,
A true Vicar of Bray,
Except that his bray lost his living.

"Gainst free-thinkers," he roars,
"You should all shut your doors,
Or be bound in the Devil's indentures."
And here I agree,
For who ever would be
A guest where old Simony enters!

Dr. Nott, tutor to the late Princess Charlotte of Wales, who preached a Sermon denouncing Lord Byron's Cain as a blasphemous production.--L. E.
