Bonnie Ship the Diamond

Oh the Diamond is a ship, me lads, for the Davis Strait she's bound
And the quay it is all garnished with bonnie lasses 'round
Captain Thompson gives the order to sail the ocean wide
Where the sun it never sets, me lads, nor dark clouds dim the sky

So it's cheer up, me lads, let your heart never fail
For the bonnie ship the
Diamond goes a fishing for the whale

All along the quay at Peterhead the lasses stand around
With their shawls all pulled around them and the salt tears runnin' down
Now don't you weep, my bonnie lass, though you'll be left behind
For the rose will bloom on Greenland's ice before we change our mind

Here's a health to the Resolution, likewise the Eliza Swan
Here's a health to the Battler of Old Montrose and the Diamond ship of fame
We'll wear our trousers made of white and the jackets made of blue
When we return to Peterhead, we'll have sweethearts anew

It will be bright both day and night when the Greenland lads come home
With a ship that's full of oil, me lads, and money to our names
We'll build those cradles for the rock and the blankets for to tear
And every lass in Peterhead will sing "Hushabye, my dear"
