Our version of “Spanish Ladies“, a traditional British naval song, describing a voyage from Spain to the Downs from the viewpoint of ratings of the Royal Navy. I used Garage Band to edit the song and add instruments.
Farewell and adieu to you, Spanish ladies,
Farewell and adieu to you, ladies of Spain;
For we have received orders
For to sail to old England,
But we hope in a short time to see you again.
We’ll rant and we’ll roar, like true British sailors,
We’ll rant and we’ll roar across the salt seas;
Until we strike soundings
In the Channel of old England,
From Ushant to Scilly ‘tis thirty-five leagues.
Four different version of this song:
