lyrics

Where nailed to the rotting flagstaffs:
The old white Ensigns flew
Badge of our English freedom
Over all the waters blue.

We’re nailed to the rotting flagstaffs:
We’re lashed onto the poles
It’d be an honor to die
To have the glaciers claim our souls

There’s a hole in the ship
And there’s water coming in
We’ve had to eat our dead
And the ice ain’t quite so thin

As we would like it to be
All our charts are way off
For king and country we’ll nail our coffins down
where the wild waves thrash and toss

If old scylla and charybdis
Crawled out of the cold
Crawled onto the decks
Crawled into the hold

If they all clasped their hands
Called destruction from the sky
Englishmen we were born
Englishmen we will die
