The Song Book
103
While oft the lead the seaman flung, And to the pilot cheerly sung,
" By the mark, Seven !"
And as the much-lov'd shore we near, With transport we behold the roof
Where dwelt a friend or partner dear, Of faith and love a matchless proof;
The lead once more the seaman flung,
And to the watchful pilot sung, " Quarter less Five !"
From the Opera " Hartford Bridge."
Words by Pearce. Tune by Shield.
LXXVIII
CARE, THOU CANKER OF OUR JOYS
Seize the villain, plunge him in ;
See the hated miscreant dies : Mirth and all thy train come in,
Banish sorrow, tears, and sighs.
O'er our merry midnight bowls, Oh, how happy shall we be ;
Day was made for vulgar souls, Night, my boys, for you and me.
Chappell. Words by Grant. Tune attributed to Garth of Durham.
