Haynau's retreat

This ballad concerns Baron Haynau, who, on a visit to London, narrowly escaped lynching due to his cruelty in supressing the reform movement in Hungary. He was recognized in the street by some draymen from a local brewery (Barclay & Perkin's). First line reads: A funny song, not very long.
