67. 36.i - Thomas’s Introduction

Come all ye bold fellows, to this place of gum!

And we’ll sing in the praise of good brandy and rum.

Let’s lift up our glasses, good cheer’s our goal –

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl.

 

We’ll fathom the bowl, we’ll fathom the bowl –

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl!

 

From France we do get brandy, from Jamaica comes rum,

Sweet oranges and lemons from Portugal come –

But stout, beer and cider are England’s control –

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl.

 

We’ll fathom the bowl, we’ll fathom the bowl –

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl!

 

Oh my wife, she do disturb me as I lie at my ease!

She does as she likes and she says as she please.

Oh my wife: she’s the Devil. She’s black as the gaol!

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl.

 

We’ll fathom the bowl, we’ll fathom the bowl –

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl!

 

Oh my father, he do lie in the depths of the sea!

No stone at his head, but what matters to he?

Here’s a gallon of strong cider, his death to console!

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl!

 

We’ll fathom the bowl, we’ll fathom the bowl –

Bring in the punch ladle, we’ll fathom the bowl!
