It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

and two bankrupting wars instead.

m2 1647 Elizabeth Cokayne bpt 11.10.1618, d 1675, dau of William Cokayne or Cockain, alderman of London
Elizabeth is sometimes identified as the daughter of Sir William Cokayne of Rushton Hall, Lord Mayor of London, and widow of Thomas, 1st Viscount Fanshawe. However, that appears to have been a different Elizabeth Cokayne.
