    Hark! don't ye hear it roar now?

    Unhappy folks on shore, now.

For we're booming down on the old trail, our own trail, the out

We're sagging south on the Long Trail, the trail that is always

Speed on her prow, and terror in her tier.

She comes majestic with her swelling sails,
The gallant Ship: along her watery way,
Homeward she drives before the favouring gales;
Now flirting at their length the streamers play,
And now they ripple with the ruffling breeze.

For why drives on that ship so fast,
Without or wave or wind?
The air is cut away before,
And closes from behind.

The Liner she's a lady, an' she never looks nor 'eeds--
The Man-o'-War's 'er 'usband an' 'e gives 'er all she needs;

They're just the same as you an' me, a'-plyin' up an' down.
