No. 19 - Song - Commodore - "The Girl at the Helm."

MIDI File

Commodore: Ever since Adam and Eve were young,
Woman's ruled the day.
Poets her praises have often sung
In the roundelay,
Taking a hand in affairs of state
Since the world began,
Leading him on and sealing the fate
Of poor unfortunate man.
All men should have a guiding star,
A girl at the helm
That leads them from afar,
And then, if she's the proper sort,
It's the girl at the helm
That steers them into port.
Chorus: All men should have a guiding star,
A girl at the helm
That leads them from afar,
And then, if she's the proper sort,
It's the girl at the helm
That steers them into port.
   
Commodore: Man is a creature that's eas'ly tired
In the game of life.
And if he never could be inspired,
He'd give up the strife.
Every one of him must confess
When he wins the prize.
It is because he has found success
In a pair of eyes.
All men should have a guiding star,
A girl at the helm
That leads them from afar,
And then, if she's the proper sort,
It's the girl at the helm
That steers them into port.
Chorus: All men should have a guiding star,
A girl at the helm
That leads them from afar,
And then, if she's the proper sort,
It's the girl at the helm
That steers them into port.
