Matt Woodbury/Mimosa Lyr Req: Preab San Ol (40) RE: Preab San Ol; lyr add & req 23 Jul 01

From "A Bonnie Bunch of Roses" Songs of England Ireland & Scotland, Dan Milner & Paul Kaplan, pg 215, includes a verse:

The shipmen trading in Spain and Aden
Return well laden with corn and oil.
And from Gibraltar their course they'll alter
And steer for Malta and the Golden Horn.
With easy motion, they sail life's ocean
And ne'er a notion they'll soon run aground,
So, lads and lasses for another round.

The verse is short one line.
Source is listed as "Learned from D. O'Sullivan, Songs of the Irish, and the singing of the Dubliners.

If that's enough for anyone to supply the missing verse, it's been driving me nuts since I bought the book, and is one of the reasons I ended up here at Mudcat.
