DON'T GIVE UP THE SHIP From the film "Shipmates Forever" (1935) (Harry Warren / Al Dubin / Lt. William Gordon Beecher Jr. USN) Dick Powell (Film Soundtrack) - 1935 Tommy Dorsey & His Orch. (vocal: Cliff Weston) - 1935 Shipmates, stand together Don't give up the ship Fair or stormy weather We won't give up We won't give up the ship Friends and pals forever It's a long, long trip If you have to take a lickin' Carry on and quit your kickin' Don't give up the ship ***** English version with lyrics by Charles Dunn: Whate'er fate may send us Don't give up the ship Though the gale may rend us We won't give up We won't give up the ship Fear shall not transcend us Let the storm gods rip Life's a passage, you can make it Let your chin stand out and take it Don't give up the ship *****
