ALL THE NICE GIRLS LOVE A SAILOR A J Mill & B Scott from 'Ship Ahoy' (1909) When the man o' war or merchant ship comes sailing into port The jolly tar with joy, will sing out, Land Ahoy! With his pockets full of money and a parrot in a cage He smiles at all the pretty girls upon the landing stage... All the nice girls love a sailor All the nice girls love a tar For there's something about a sailor (Well you know what sailors are!) Bright and breezy, free and easy, He's the ladies' pride and joy! He falls in love with Kate and Jane, then he's off to sea again, Ship ahoy! Ship ahoy! He will spend his money freely, and he's generous to his pals, While Jack has got a sou, there's half of it for you, And it's just the same in love and war, he goes through with a smile, And you can trust a sailor, he's a white man (meaning: honest man) all the while! All the nice girls love a sailor All the nice girls love a tar For there's something about a sailor (Well you know what sailors are!) Bright and breezy, free and easy, He's the ladies' pride and joy! He falls in love with Kate and Jane, then he's off to sea again, Ship ahoy! Ship ahoy (Contributed by =Ae= - January 2009)
