On the noble fleet of whalers out sailing from Dundee,|
Well manned by British sailors to work them on the sea;
On the western ocean passage none with them can compare
For there's not a ship could make the trip as the "Balena" I declare.
And the wind is on her quarter and her engine working free
And there's not another whaler a-sailing from Dundee
Can beat the aul' "Balena" and you needna try her on
For we challenge all both large and small from Dundee to St.Johns.
2. There's the new built "Terra Nova", she's a model with no doubt
3. And it happened on the Thursday four days after we left Dundee
4. Bold Jacklin carries canvas and fairly raises steam
5. An' now that we've landed boys, where the rum is mighty cheap
