Scouts of the Sea
Words by Commander Thomas J. Keane
1. Caring naught for wind or weather
Over the seven seas we sail;
One for all and all together,
We drive our sturdy ship into the gale.
Standing our watches port or starboard,
Setting our sails to catch the wind where e'er they be;
True Scouts of old glory,
We're Scouts of the sea.
2. Hauling on halyard sheets and bunt lines,
Setting stuns'ls to the breeze;
Before the trade winds scudding,
Sailing on to foreign lands and seas.
