Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship, Who at once did our peril see, " I have married a wife in fair London town, And this night she a widow will be."
For the raging seas did roar, And the stormy winds did blow,
And we, jolly sailor boys, were up, up aloft,
And the land lubbers lying down below, below, below, And the landsmen were all down below.
And then up spoke the little cabin boy, And a fair hair'd boy was he; " I've a father and mother in fair Portsmouth town, And this night they will weep for me." For the raging seas, &c.
Then three times round went our gallant ship,
And three times round went she; For the want of a lifeboat they both went down,
As she sunk to the bottom of the sea." For the raging seas, &c.
H. 4868.
