A-Cruising We Will Go

Behold upon the swelling seas
With streaming pennants gay,
Our gallant ship invites the waves,
While glory leads the way.
Chorus:
: And a-cruising we will go, oho, oho, oho! :
And a-cruising we will go, ooooooho,
And a-cruising we will go!

2. You beauteous maids, your smiles bestow,
For if you prove unkind,
How can we hope to beat the foe?
We leave our hearts behind.
Chorus:

3. See Hardy's flage once more displayed,
Upon the deck he stands;
Britannia's glory ne'er can fade,
Or tarnish in his hands.
Chorus:

4. Britain to herself but true,
To France defiance hurled,
Give peace, America, with you,
And war with all the world.
Chorus:
