YOU GENTLEMEN OF ENGLAND
It enemies oppose us,
And England is at war With any foreign nation,
We fear not wound or scar; To humble them, come on, lads,
Their flags we'll soon lay low-Clear the way for the fray,
Though the stormy winds do blow.
A sailor must have courage,
No danger he must shun, In ev'ry kind of weather
His course he still must run : Now mounted on the topmast,
How fearful 'tis below, Then we ride as the tide.
When the stormy winds do blow
But when the danger's over,
And safe we come on shore, The horrors of the tempest
We think upon no more ; We find a hearty welcome
Wherever we may go, Safe and sound on dry ground,
When the stormy winds do blow.
H. 4368.
