ALas, Rapaire, the helmsman bold
He could not stand the gaff;
The endless gale got to his nerves
And he started in to laugh.
He swore he was fighting German subs
In 1943;
So we put him below with Little Hawk
To restore his sanity.

Our clothes were wet and their hides were raw
And the scudding clouds blew by,
When someone a glimpse of sunlight saw
A crack in a slate-dark sky.
He hollered loud for the rest to see
The proof of a living day,
And we whooped it up till the clouds shut down
On course for the next of Kay.
