THE GIRLS OF VALPARAISO
Our good ship's name's the Hero, the Hero of renown.
With skysails set and staysails, to-gallant sails also.
And now we are around Cape Horn where there's pleasure night and day.
They're like the Irish sailor when he goes on a spree.
Here's a health to Valparaiso, we drink it with a smile
