Tanqueray Martini-O!

We set out from Stamford town
With a fleet of stinkpots all around
When from up aloft a cry came down:
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"
It's good for captain and for crew
It's the only drink you can look right through,
And there's really nothing else will do ---
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"

cho: So haul the sheets back with one hand,
Set your drink down, if you can
And never sail out of sight of land.
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"

At Greenwich harbor we put in
For we were getting short of gin
To continue on would have been a sin
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"
Our skipper's lying on the floor
He was selected to go for more
But he broke his leg tryin' to get on shore.
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"

cho:

Nine parts of gin and one vermouth
It's the sailors friend, ain't that the truth
From Sheepshead Bay to the Bay of Booth
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"
Southhampton girls have figures fine
Rigged loose in front and taut behind
With packing slips from Calvin Klein
"Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!"

cho:

Brad
Bellerophon, 46' staysail ketch
"England expects that every man will do his duty."

First post on SailNet, have about a month until my buddy and I finish our little Ensenada, but think it will be:

Brave Captain - fIREHOSE

captain, there are doubts
regarding
your ability
to lead them
the men
lead them
there are doubts in your ability
there's too many blanks in your analogies
lieutenant there is talk
pertaining interpretations
the problems
describe them
problems
there are doubts in your ability
there's too many blanks in your analogies
the enemy turns captain
the captain turns civilian
the lieutenant becomes casualty
the lieutenant becomes casualty
the enemy turns captain
and the captain turns civilian
the lieutenant becomes casualty
the lieutenant becomes casualty
there are doubts in your ability
there's too many blanks in your analogies
there's too many doubts in your ability
there's too many blanks
in your analogies
