NUMBER:7830
AUTHOR:Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
QUOTATION:Now landsmen all, whoever you may be,
If you want to rise to the top of the tree
If your soul is n’t fettered to an office stool
Be careful to be guided by this golden rule:
Stick close to your desks and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of the Queen’s Navee.
ATTRIBUTION:The first Lord’s Song.
