    For all you Blokes down in Devon, UK.......

    The Wreck Of The Athens Queen

    We were drinking down to Reedy's house
    When first we heard the blow
    It seemed to come from Ripper Rock
    So boldly forth to go

    And sure enough the rusty tub
    Could just be barely seen
    As her stern was high up in the air
    We made out Athens Queen

    O, the lovely Athens Queen

    Me boys I must remind you
    There's a bottle left inside
    So let us go and have a few
    And wait until low tide

    And if the sea's not claimed her
    When the glasses are licked clean
    We will then set forth some dories lads
    And see what may be seen

    On the lovely Athens Queen

    Some songs and old tall stories then
    Came out to pass the time
    Nor could a single bottle
    Keep us all until low tide

    And so it was before we left
    The house we were at sea
    So we scarcely can remember
    How we made the Athens Queen

    O, the lovely Athens Queen

    O the waves inside me belly
    Were as high as those outside
    And though I'm never seasick I
    lost dinner overside

    T'was well there was no crew to save
    For we'd have scared 'em green
    We could scarcely keep ourselves
    From falling off the Athens Queen

    O, the lovely Athens Queen

    Well Reedy goes straight down below
    And comes up with a cow
    Hello I said now what would you
    Be wantin' with that now

    You'll never take the cow home
    In a dory on such sea
    Well me friend he says I've always fancied
    Fresh cream in me tea

    For the lovely Athens Queen

    I headed for the galley then
    Cause I was rather dry
    And glad I was to get there quick
    For what should I spy

    O what a shame it would have been
    For to lose it all at sea
    Forty cases of the best Napolean
    Brandy ever seen

    On the lovely Athens Queen

    I loaded twenty cases boys
    Then headed for the shore
    Unloaded them as quick as that
    And then pulled back for more

    Smith was pullin' for the shore
    But he could scarce be seen
    Under near two hundred chickens
    And a leather couch of green

    From the lovely Athens Queen

    So here's to all good salvagers
    Likewise to Ripper Rock
    And to Napolean brandy of which
    Now we have much stock

    We eat a lot of chicken
    And sit on a couch of green
    And we wait for Ripper Rock
    To claim another Athens Queen

    O, the lovely Athens Queen

    Well, if the ship is abandoned, the cargo is up for grabs.
