Cheer up, mates ; what though we now must leave them, Leave wives and sweethearts, off again to go, Let not our looks at parting still more grieve them ; They're sad enough, without our grief, we know ; Cheer up, shipmates; they may be down-hearted; Tears were meant for women ; that to all is plain ; What though a year from them we must be parted, Chink we'll have for them, when back we come again; Give them three cheers now, now while they can hear
them; Cheerily let our last breath to them go ; While we're afar, we'd have our last looks cheer them ; Now round, men, with a will, with, " Yo, heave ho."
Work, lads, work; that best kills idle grieving; What though a year from them we all must be ; Love grows with longing, so our girls we're leaving, When next we're home but dearer looks to see;
