We ne'er see our foes but we wish them to stay;    They swear they'll invade us, these terrible
They never see us but they wish us away :             foes ; [beaus ;

For, if they won't fight us, we cannot do more.        o'er, [shore.
Heart of oak &c.                 Stil* Britons they'll find to receive them on
Heart of oak, &c.
