It can get lonely at sea. Sailors would play cards and sing to pass the time. Here’s a deck and a famous old sea shanty to see you through those rough times.
This is only the first verse but the full ballad dates back to 1796. It has also been sung in the films Jaws and Master and Commander.
Farewell an’ adieu to you fair Spanish ladies,
Farewell an’ adieu to you ladies of Spain,
For we’ve received orders for to sail for old England,
An’ hope very shortly to see you again.
