Words by L. J. Sheehan. Music by C. McCabe.

A sailor's home is on the wave, the blue sea is a seaman's bride;
There's music for the sailor brave in the sound of the rising tide;
Whether we run before a gale, or we floating tranquilly,
A sailor's heart will never fail, so hurrah for a life at sea.
Yo-hol Yo-ho!

Then hurrah for our sturdy craft as she dances over the wave,
With sails a-drawing for and aft, hurrah for the sailor brave:
'Tis with joy we lose sight of land, and with hearts that are light and free,
As we gaze upon the ocean grand, shout hurrah for a life at seat

A sailor's heart with joy is filled, as his bark cleaves the rushing wave,
With thought of fear he's never thrilled, for true sailors are always brave;
When 'tis calm upon the deep, and the waves roll peacefully,
What joy 'tis then to be rocked to sleep on the breast of the heaving sea.
Yo-ho! Yo-ho!-Chorus.
