A toast of honor to good ol' John Bull
aboard his sparred wherry shuttle
to a frigate whose stern mast isn't true
as the girls fading off waving in calico

Beware the bridgehead 3 barrel heads past
where the rigging got heavy weighing out
whoever was the most crass
singing "I will be fallen before John Bull"

when the moorings rot and tethers worn thin
and sails are filling up in the wind
get the feeling that its a bit like falling

its a bit like falling in love

Its colder now than the bottom of the Canada moors
walking a borzoid in the Alps in 1924
cursing at the snow with quinine breath
