Heart of Oak - H.M. Royal Marines & Black Watch lyrics

Come, cheer up, my lads, 'tis to glory we steer,
To add something more to this wonderful year;
To honour we call you, not press you like slaves
For who are so free as the sons of the waves?
(Chorus...) Heart of oak are our ships, jolly tars are our men,
we always are ready; Steady, boys, steady!
We'll fight and we'll conquer again and again.

We ne'r see our foes but we wish them to stay,
They always see us and they wish us away;
If they run, we will follow, we will drive them ashore,
And if they won't fight, we can do no more.


They swear they'll invade us, these terrible foes,
They frighten our women, our children, and beaus;
But should their flat bottoms in darkness get o'er,
Still Britons they'll find to receive them on shore.

We'll still make them fear and we'll still make them flee,
And drub them on shore as we’ve drubbed them at sea,
Then cheer up, my lads, with one heart let us sing,
Our soldiers, our sailors, our statesmen, and king.
