Thread Name: Origins: A Capital Ship (Charles Edward Carryl)
Subject: Lyr Req: childish sailing song (perhaps)
Years ago ,in school, we used to sing a sailing song.I can't remember the name, but I will jot down a few of the lyrics.
" No gale that blew dismayed her crew or troubled the captain's mind"
"the man at the wheel was taught to feel contempt for the wildest blow"
and something about eating rub-a-gub bark . Does this song sound familiar to anyone else ? I would appreciate any and all responses. Thank-you.
