150           Songs and Ballads
8     Until the Enterprise box'd her,
And quickly made them see That we all were Yankee heroes Just from America.
9     So now weVe gain'd the VICTORY,
My Yankee hearts of steel, Let's save our enemies lives, Who now to us must yield.
io When we came on board my boys,
'T would grieve your hearts full sore, To see those proud Englishmen Lay bleeding in their gore.
11      Come now our fight is ended,
And we'll go home with speed, To join those Americans Who've done such warlike deeds.
12     Then we '11 join in choruses,
And this shall be our song, "Good luck attend our Navy In hopes 'twill flourish long."
13     It's now in Portland harbor
Our lucky ship does lay, May God bless Lieutenant Burrows, And all his warlike band.
14     Now we'll go on shore my boys,
Where Liberty does dwell, It's one of the greatest blessings, That nothing can excel.
