No. 21 - Chorus of Yachtsmen and Bathing Girls

MIDI File

Men: Yo ho! for a jolly good sail.
A sail on the ocean blue,
Who cares for the threatening gale
When ev'ry heart is true?
Our craft is staunch and well we know
No storm can make her reel.
Our course it is clear; we know no fear,
For Jack holds a steady wheel.
Yo ho! for a jolly good sail.
A sail on the ocean blue,
Our hearts are free. We love the sea.
We fear no threatening gale.
Our hearts are free, we love the sea.
We fear no threatening gale.
Girls: Yo ho!
Men: Yo ho!
Girls: Yo ho!
Men: Yo ho!
All: Yo ho! for a jolly good sail.
Men: Yo ho! for a sail,
A sail on the ocean blue,
We fear no threatening gale,
For our hearts are true.
Yo ho! for a sail,
A sail on the ocean blue,
Our hearts are free, we love the sea.
Yo ho! for a jolly good sail.
Girls: We are frivolous, frolicsome bathing girls.
From morning to night we are busy.
You'd better steer clear of our escapades
Unless you expect to get dizzy.
We are fishers of men and we're out for sport.
We always are ogling and angling.
With our charms for a bait we can soon land a skate.
He nibbles, we pull, and he's dang, dangling.
