The Captain's; Daughter Nell.
Copyright, 1891, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by John Keynton.

She's the loveliest craft that a sailor could spy.
Her eyes are the ocean's blue;
And her laugh is as fresh as the breeze rushing by.
Her heart it is kind And true, her heart it is kind and true.
For her there's a toast, for her there's a song;
Her smile is a world of cheer;
While over the sea we're bounding along,
To Jack she's an angel dear.
Yo, ho! hilli ho! for the captain's daughter Nell!

So the winds they may blow, the seas they may flow,
There's one that poor Jack loves well;
She is trim, she is neat, a beauty complete,
The captain's daughter Nell.

When it's Jack's watch below, she is still in his dreams,
He thinks of his home ashore;
And he sees his own girl, when her smile on him beams,
And walks by her side once more, yes, walks by her side once more.
She heeds not the storm, she paces the deck;
For fearless is she, and brave;
She laughs at the sky that threatens to wreck,
Our queen of the ocean wave.
Yo, ho! hilli ho! for the captain's daughter Nell.- Chorus.

Not a sailor aboard but would die to defend
This beauty all hearts admire;
On the help of poor Jack she can always depend,
To serve her he'd never tire, to serve her he'd never tire.
A rainbow is she, the sailors' delight,
A joy to the hearts of all;
The life of the ship, from morning till night,
Tho' loud is the Boson's call.
Yo, ho! hilli ho! for the captain's daughter Nell.-Chorus.
