Here's the Tender Comin'

Here's the tender cominn'
Pressing all the maen
Oh, my hinny, what shall we do then?
Here's the tender comin'
Off at Shield's bar
Here's the tender comin'
Full of men-o'-war.

Hide thee, canny Geordie
Hide thyself away,
Hide thee till the tender
Makes for Druid's bay;
If they catch thee Geordie
Who's to win our bread?
Me and little Jacky'd
Better off be dead.

Here's the tender comin'
A-stealin' of me dear,
Oh, my hinny,
They'll press ye out o' here;
They will send ye foreign
THat is what this means,
Here's the tender comin'
Full o' red marines.

Here's the tender cominn'
Pressing all the maen
Oh, my hinny, what shall we do then?
Here's the tender comin'
Off at Shield's bar
Here's the tender comin'
Full of men-o'-war.

From Songs of the Sea, Hugill
