Music of the Watees.               71
" If the enemy should dare to meet us once more, Like lightning to our guns then we fly ; Our great guns shall roar like thunder in the air, Determined to conquer or to die.
None can equal the courage of True Blue, None can equal the courage of True Blue. He dies by his gun, Britain's rights to maintain, None can equal the courage of True Blue.
Now the prize we have taken and made her our own, To some port or sure harbour we will steer.
Our officers and crew are both loyal and true; To our admiral we give a hearty cheer. None can equal, &c.
Now here's a good health to his true-hearted, And the girl that will prove loyal and true;
For this is the way poor sailors spend their lives, None can equal the courage of the blue. None can equal, &c."
