We ne'er see our foes but we wish them to stay, They never see us but they wish us away; If they run, why we follow, and run them ashore, For, if they won't fight us, we cannot do more.
Heart of oak, &c.
They swear they'll invade us, these terrible foes; They frighten our women, our children, and beaus ; But, should their flat bottoms in darkness get o'er, Still Britons they'll find to receive them on shore.
Heart of oak, &c.
We'll still make them fear, and we'll still make them flee, And drub 'em on shore, as we've drubb'd 'em at sea, Then cheer up, my lads, with one heart let us sing, Our soldiers, our sailors, our statesmen, our king.
Heart of oak, &c.
We'll still make 'em run, and we'll still make 'em sweat, In spite of the devil, and Brussels Gazette, Then cheer up, my lads, with one heart let us sing, Our soldiers, our sailors, our statesmen, and king.
Heart of oak, &c.
Words by Garrick.
Tune by Dr. Boyce.
