THAT'S OUR WAY.
We jaw and chatter ? no;
When work we have to do Straight at them, boys, we go,
With perhaps a cheer or two ; We let our broadsides, Jack,
Say all we have to say; That we've done for ages back;
That's our way.
Your French and foreign cnaps
Palaver, froth and fuss ; Their chatter suits them perhaps ;
It doesn't do for us ; For work, we keep our breath ;
What's the use of jaw ? we say ; Come victory or come death,
That's our way.
