I'M BUBBLED. AKA and see "Irish Trot (2)." The air appears under this title in John Gay's Beggar's Opera of 1729 (air 36), sung by Polly and Lucy to the tune of "Irish Trot (2)." Frank Kidson (1922) says it is probably an alternative tune to "Hide Park Frolic (The)" in D'Urfey's Pills to Purge Melancholy, vol. IV, p. 138.

I'm bubbled, I'm bubbled. Oh, how I'm troubled!
Bamboozled and bit! My distresses are doubled.
When you come to the tree, should the hangman refuse,
These fingers, with pleasure, could fasten the noose.
