Songs from ‘An Island in The Moon’
IV. Hear then the pride and knowledge of a sailor!
 
HEAR 1 then the pride and knowledge of a sailor!
His sprit sail, fore sail, main sail, and his mizen.
A poor frail man—God wot! I know none frailer,
I know no greater sinner than John Taylor.
 
Note 1. IV] Sung by Steelyard the Lawgiver, MS., chap. viii. [back]
