When the middle watch was on,
And the time went slow, boy, Who could tune a rousing stave,
Who like Jack or Joe, boy ? Don't forget, etc.
There she swings an empty hulk,
Not a soul below now; Number seven, starboard mess,
Misses Jack and Joe now. Don't forget^ etc.
But the best of friends must part,
Fair or foul the weather; Tip us your flipper for a shake,
Now a drink together ;
And don't forget your old shipmate^ etc.
