A catch commemorating the rivalry between the first two English musical historians.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Have you read Sir John Hawkins' hist'ry?
Some folks think it quite a myst'ry.
Music filled his wond'rous brain.
How d'ye like him; is it plain?
Both I've read and must agree,
Burney's hist'ry pleases me.
