Song Lyrics
Verse 2

'Twas on one Friday morning, the twenty eighth of June,
We hoist our English colours, out of Lisbon we was bound,
We hoist our English colours, out of Lisbon we was bound,
While the hills and dales were lined with pretty girls all round.

G B Gardiner - "William Newman, 82, Salisbury Union [workhouse], August, 1909."

Note 2

"The notebook containing the text is missing. The above is from the music manuscript."

Chris Wildridge - the above text is slightly amended in the last line where the text is grammatically correct. The actual wording is givenbelow.

'Twas on one Friday morning, the twenty eighth of June,
We hoist our English colours, out of Lisbon we was bound,
We hoist our English colours, out of Lisbon we was bound,
While the hills and dales where lined with pretty girls all round.
