No. 3 - Song - Fairfax - Jack's the boy

MIDI File

Fairfax: Of all the lads that be
There is only one for me,
And his home is on the waters deep and blue;
But a friend he'll never lack,
For the world's in love with Jack —
He's the smartest and the best of fellows, too!
So his hand we like to grip
As he goes aboard his ship,
While the girls are fit to break their pretty hearts —
For he loves them by the score,
When he gaily comes ashore,
And they're sad when their Jack departs!
Jack's the boy for work,
Jack's the boy for play,
Jack's the lad, when girls are sad,
To kiss the tears away!
Ah! Hard as nails afloat,
Best of friends ashore,
Jack ahoy! You're just the boy
That all our hearts adore!
  Men: Jack's the boy for work,
Jack's the boy for play,
Jack's the lad, when girls are sad,
To kiss the tears away!
Ah! Hard as nails afloat,
Best of friends ashore,
Jack ahoy! You're just the boy
That all our hearts adore!

Fairfax: When Jack has got his pay
He's the gayest of the gay,
For the money in his pocket burns a hole,
And he's never happy quite
Till he's spent it left and right,
Like a jovial and careless hearted soul!
Though he's very far from shy
When a pretty girl is by,
Yes, a lad may surely kiss and never tell.
And when duty calls him back
Taut and trim goes jolly Jack,
To the ship that he loves so well!
Jack's the boy for work,
Jack's the boy for play,
Jack's the lad, when girls are sad,
To kiss the tears away!
Ah! Hard as nails afloat,
Best of friends ashore,
Jack ahoy! You're just the boy
That all our hearts adore!
Men: Jack's the boy for work,
Jack's the boy for play,
Jack's the lad, when girls are sad,
To kiss the tears away!
Ah! Hard as nails afloat,
Best of friends ashore,
Jack ahoy! You're just the boy
That all our hearts adore!
