YOU GENTLEMEN OF ENGLAND

You gentlemen of England who live at home at ease,
How little do you think upon the dangers of the seas.
Give ear unto the mariners, and they will plainly show
All the cares, and the fears, when the stormy winds do blow.
All the cares, and the fears, when the stormy winds do blow.

All you that will be seamen must bear a valiant heart,
For when you come upon the sea you must not think to start;
Nor once to be fainthearted, in rain, hail, blow or snow,
Nor to think for to shrink when the stormy winds do blow.(2x)

The lawyer and the usurer, that sit in gowns of fur
In closets warm can take no harm, abroad they need not stir.
When winter fierce with cold doth pierce, and beats with hail and snow,
We are sure to endure when the stormy winds do blow.(2x)

Then courage, all brave mariners, and never be dismayed;
Whilst we have bold adventurers we ne'er shall want a trade.
Our merchants will employ us to fetch them wealth, I know,
Then behold, work for gold, when the stormy winds do blow.(2x)
