High diddle ding did you hear the bells ring

Melody -

High diddle ding, did you hear the bells ring?
The parliament soldiers are gone to the king!
Some they did laugh, and some they did cry,
To see the parliament soldiers go by.

Either refers to parliamentarians fetching Charles the First to be executed, or to those approaching Charles the Second to offer him the English crown.
