Music of the Waters.                   19
We'll blow the man up, and we'll blow the man
down, Oh, give me some time to blow the man down.
" Reuben Ranzo" is, perhaps, the greatest favourite with the men of all the chanties. The tune is mournful and almost haunting in its monotony:
Solo.猶ity Reuben Ranzo, Chorus.由anzo, boys, a Ranzo.
Solo.涌h, pity Reuben Ranzo, Chorus.由anzo, boys, a Ranzo.
Solo.由euben was no sailor, Chorus.由anzo, boys, a Ranzo.
Solo.由euben was no sailor, Chorus.由anzo, boys, a Ranzo.
Solo.唯y trade he was a tailor, Chorus.由anzo, &c.
Solo.幽e went to school on Monday, Chorus.由anzo, &c.
Solo.有earnt to read on Tuesday, Chorus.由anzo, &c.
The chorus continues the same all through, the pull always being made at the word " Ranzo." Each line of the solo is also repeated.
