Those pilot books of old (and a health to the company!)

(Dover Strait Pilot:
The South-Eastern Coast of England from Selsey Bill to Orford Ness 
and the Coast of Europe from Cap D’Antifer to Scheveningen.
First edition, 1971.
Published by the Hydrographer of the Navy.)

Here's a health to the wee lass that I love so well
For style and for beauty there's none can excel
There's a smile on her countenance as she sits upon my knee
There is no man in this wide world as happy as me

Our ship lies at anchor, she is ready to dock
I wish her safe landing without any shock
And if ever I should meet you by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me

So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
Let's drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may or might never all meet here again

(Irish traditional song, Here's a health to the companyKevin Coniff & Moya Brennan alive version)

Felices Fiestas a quien pase por aquí estos días.
