I do believe it goes something like this? (I can't get into the db either)
Various ren-faire artists have recorded this. Jim Hancock is one I know has it out
Farewell and adieu to you, Spanish ladies,
Farewell and adieu to you, ladies of Spain;
For we've received orders to sail to old England,
But we hope in a short time to see you again.
We'll rant and we'll roar like true British sailors,
We'll rant and we'll roar all along the salt seas;
Until we strike soundings in the Channel of old England:
From Ushant to Scilly be thirty-five leagues.
Then we hove our ship to, with the wind from the sou'-west, boys
Then we hove our ship to, deep soundings to take;
With forty five fathoms and a wide sandy bottem
we hauled our main mast and up Channel did make.
Now let every man drink off his full bumper,
Let every man drink off his full glass;
For we will be jolly and drown melancholy,
and her is a health to each true hearted lass.
