Lyrics

(Sea shanty)

1. Oh a drop of Nelson’s blood wouldn’t do us any harm, (repeat twice)
and we’ll all hang on behind

Refrain
And, we’ll roll the old chariot along,
we’ll roll the old chariot along,
we’ll roll the old chariot along
and we’ll all hang on behind

2. And a plate of Irish stew wouldn’t do us any harm. Refrain

3. Oh, a nice watch below wouldn’t do us any harm…

4. Oh, a good night ashore wouldn’t do us any harm…
