Sailors they get all the money,
Soldiers they get none but brass;
I do love a jolly sailor,
Soldiers they may kiss my arse."

I'm not trying to start an interservice feud, but does anyone know anything more about this song? Other verses? Actual name? Tune?Anything. I have a Celtic band in mind that I think might be eespecially interested in learning it -- they're selling T-shirts with the last three words of the verse above emblazoned on them in Gaelic! "Pog mo thron," or something like that.

Can anyone tell us more about this song?
