Odds blood, hammer and tongs, long as I've been to sea, I've fought 'gainst every odds—but I've gained the victory. That ship there is a Frenchman, and if we don't take she, 'T is a thousand bullets to one, that she will capture we; I haven't the gift of the gab, my boys, so each man to his gun; If she's not mine in half an hour, I'll flog each mother's son.

And make the vane On the spire complain; They heave at the steeple with might and main, And burst and sweep Into the belfry, on the bell!
