Tenors: The morning breaks upon the shore
And toil once more awakes.
The dark is done and with the sun
Must ev'ry one embark!
Spread out the net and then
Fishermen away!
In the leaping spray
There is bread to get
For the home today.
All men: No longer in lazy slumber lie —
In the Eastern sky
Now dawn is high,
Once more to sea away
Before the sun is stronger.
The morning breaks upon the shore
And toil once more awakes.
Girls: The guards, we're told,
Are here on duty,
Our heroes bold
The harbour quay they hold!
They'll face the foe, we know,
And lay him low
If he should give them any chance of doing so!
But sons of Mars
Are fond of beauty,
And love beguiles
Their labours now and then.
We'll give them some cigars
To smoke on sentry duty,
And cheer with charming smiles
Our gallant soldier men.
Soldiers: We are a regiment who never are afraid
If any enemies invade our land!
So long as they do not appear,
We never show the slightest fear
For we are at our post and here
We stand!
And when attractive maidens look at us and smile
Our weary watching to beguile awhile,
We feel no longer faint,
But fresh as paint —
No service seems too hard
For a gallant guard.
Ensemble: The guards, we're told,
Are here on duty,
Our heroes bold
The harbour quay they hold!
They'll face the foe, we know,
And lay him low
If he should give them any chance of doing so!
But sons of Mars
Are fond of beauty,
And love beguiles
Their labours now and then.
We'll give them some cigars
To smoke on sentry duty,
And cheer with charming smiles
Our gallant soldier men.
