My boat's by the tower and my bark's on the bay|
And both must be gone at the dawn of the day
The moon's in her shroud and to light thee afar
On the deck of the daring's a love-lighted star.
|:So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee
Oh this night or never my bride thou shalt be:|
2. Forgive me rough mood unaccustomed to sue
3. The Frenchmand and Don will flee from our path|
And the Englishman cower below at our wrath
And our sails shall be gilt in the gold of the day
And the sea robins sing as we roll on our way.
4. A hundred shall serve - the best of the brave -
