39-—OUTWARD AND HOMEWARD BOUND.
1 To Katharine Docks we'll bid adieu, To saucy Poll and lovely Sue; Our anchor's weighed, our sails unfurled, We're bound to plough the watery world;
For the seas we're outward bound, mv boys, For the seas we're outward bound.
2   Then when we come to Malabar, Or any port that is so far,
Our thund'ring cannons we'll let fly, And send our foes right through the sky;
For the seas we're outward bound, my boys, &c.
3   Some Russian ship we'll take in tow And to old England speedy go, The steady breeze our sails will fill, And every Jack shall meet his Jill.
From the seas we're homeward bound, my boys, &c.
4   When we return to Foil and Sue, To all good friends in London too, Our pockets will with gold be lined, And all our troubles left behind.
From the seas we're homeward bound, my boys, &c.
5   Our hands and hearts to all men free, We'll dance our kiddies on our knee, And give th'old girl a hearty smack; She'll say, "You are a saucy Jack!'
From the seas we're homeward bound, my boys, &c.
