OLD GROG.
His sailors' name for Admiral Vernon who took and destroyed Porto Bello.
Nov. 21st, 1739.
If you want a yarn, old fellow,
To jot down in your log, Hear this of Porto Bello,
How 'twas taken by Old Grog; Ah, lads, but he could do it!
At nothing, boys, he failed; So with him to winówe knew itó
For Panama we sailed; I shipped bold Vernon under,
And we set home-folks agog, Quite mad with joy and wonder
At that deed of brave Old Grog.
