SIR EDWARD PELLEW AT PLYMOUTH.
January 26th, 1796.
Oh ! gallant Ned Pellew
Was a hero, lads, as true As ever yet drew seaman's breath ;
No braver heart than he
Ever sailed the stormy sea Or laughed right in the face of death.
Was there fighting to be clone
Or a good risk to be run What, for odds, did Ned Pellew care ?
When once he only knew
What work he had to do, He did it well, right off, then and there.
