W: W:ch W:Heart of oak are our ships! Jolly tars our men! W:We are always ready! Steady, boys, steady! W:We'll fight and we'll conquer again and again! W: W:2 W:We ne'er see our foes but we wish them to stav: W:They never see us but they wish us away. W:If they run, why, we follow, and run them ashore; W:For if they won't fight us, we cannot do more. W: W:3 W:They swear they'll invade us, these terrible foes; W:They frighten our women, our children, and beaus; W:But, should their flat-bottoms in darkness get o'er, W:Still Britons they'll find to receive them on shore. W: W:4 W:We'll still make them fear, and we'll still make them flee, W:And drub 'em on shore, as we've drubb'd 'em at sea. W:Then cheer up, my lads, with one heart let us sing, W:Our soldiers, our sailors, our statesmen, our King. W: W:5 W:Still Britain shall triumph, her ships plough the sea, W:Her standard be justice, her watchword "Be free;" W:Then cheer up, my lads, with one heart let us sing, W:Our soldiers, our sailors, our statesmen, our King. % % % % % % After The Campfire Song Book % My Own Song Book % The Song And The Story % Songs From Hazzards Huzzah % % % % %]
