Tune- "Virginia Rosebud."

We had a ham, 'twas in the bunk-room hanging.
Which we had hidden with the greatest care;
When rashers of it on the stove were frying,
A fragrant odor seemed to fill the air;
Oh, how each watched his rasher while 'twas cooking.
And thought to eat the rest another day.

That morn we left it, on the nail it was hanging,
But ere the night 'twas swiftly stole away.

They stole, they stole, they stole our ham away,
Hear us now calling, hear us, pray.

Our empty stomachs craving
For the ham, the ham they've stole away.

Full Chorus.
My fancy sees them on the stair,
They've got the ham, I do declare:
They stole, they stole, they stole our ham away,
They stole, they stole, they stole our ham away.

And then with stomachs empty and dejected,
We wandered through the house, but all in vain;
And every hole And corner was inspected,
But not a smell of ham did there remain;
Then swift as thought this firm resolve came o'er us,
That for the future, whether night or day-

Provisions that the grocery furnish for us
Should never from the house be stole away.
