The Yarn of the Nancy Bell, brought to you by Diddily's dreamland and the Mate of the Nancy gig


JODY'S TREASURE CHEST
Come with me to the sea, to the sea
                  Have shipwrecks, find Mermaids
ask  Pirates to tea.
or maybe listen to The Yarn of the Nancy Bell
as told to you, as you look at the lovely pictures.

The Yarn of the Nancy Bell

His hair was weedy, his beard was long,'Twas on the shores that round our coast
From Deal to Ramsgate span,
That I found alone on a piece of stone
An elderly naval man.

His hair was weedy, his beard was long,
And weedy and long was he,
And I heard this wight on the shore recite,
In a singular minor key:


For I couldn't help thinking,

"Oh, I am a cook and a captain bold,
And the mate of the Nancy brig,
And a bo'sun tight, and a midshipmite,
And the crew of the captain's gig."

And he shook his fists and he tore his hair,
Till I really felt afraid,
For I couldn't help thinking this man had been drinking,
And so I simply said:

"Oh, elderly man, it's little I know
Of the duties of men of the sea,
And I'll eat my hand if I understand
However you can possibly be


Once a cook and a captain
bold, and a mate of the Nancy brig'At once a cook, and a captain bold,
And the mate of the Nancy brig,
And a bo'sun tight, and a midshipmite,
And the crew of the captain's gig."

Then he gave a hitch to his trousers, which
Is a trick all seamen learn,
And having got rid of a thumping quid,
He spun this painful yarn:

Addition to blog
