The additional verse given above has an erroneous transposition in it of some of the wording.
'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 line *Return well laden with corn and oil.*
should read *Return well laden with oil and corn * ,
then it rhymes with 'And steer for Malta and the Golden Horn.'
