THEY ALL LOVE JACK.

When the ship is trim and ready, and the jolly days are done,
When the last good-byes are whispered, and Jack aboard is gone;
The lasses fall a weeping, as they watch his vessel's track,
For all the landsmen lovers are nothing after Jack-
For all the landsmen lovers are nothing after Jack.

Chorus.
For his heart is like the sea. ever open, brave and free,
And the girls must lonely be till the ship comes back;
But if love's the best of all that can a man befall,
Why, Jack's the king of all, for they all love Jack!

Where he goes their hearts go with him; e'en his ship he calls her she!
Up aloft that "little cherub, " sure a maiden she must be;
And as o'er the sea he travels, the mermaids down below,
Would give their crystal kingdoms for the love of Jack, I trow-
Would give their crystal kingdoms for the love of Jack, I trow.
For his heart is like the sea, &c.

When he's sail'd the world all over, and again he steps ashore,
There are scores of lasses waiting to love him all the more.
He may lose his golden guineas, but a wife he'll never lack,
If he'd wed them all they'd take him, for they all love Jack-
If he'd wed them all they'd take him. for they all,they all. love Jack!
For his heart is like the sea, &c.
