OUR CAPTAIN CALLS

Our captain calls all hands
To sail tomorrow.
Leaves many a fair pretty girl
In grief and sorrow.
What makes you go abroad
Fighting for strangers,
When you could stop at home
Free from all dangers?

When I had gold in store
You did invite me
Now that I'm low and poor
You seems to slight me
Dry off your brandy tears
And leave off weeping
For happy shall we be
At our next meeting

You courted me a while
Just to deceive me
Now my heart you have gained
You mean to leave me
Saying there's no belief in man
Not my own brother
So girls if you can love
Love one another.

from Seeds of Love, Sedley
