Subject: RE: Loss of pay
from the broadside balad, Angeline, after the sailor has been robbed & left penniless, he meets up with Rapper Brown

As i was walking down the street
I met up with Rapper Brown
I asked him if he'd take me in
and he looked at me with a frown
he says last time that you were paid off,
with me you chalked up no score
but I'll take your advance
and I'll give you a chance
to go to sea once more
