Santayanna - Sea Shanty


Santayana - as sung by Michael Pratt, at the VFSS Shanty Workshop Nov 30 1988
Lyrics found at the page of Andrew Draskóy: shanty.rendance.org


Santayana fought for Spain
Heave away Santayana
He fought for Spain and he gained his name
All on the plains of Mexico
And it's heave her up and away we'll go
Heave away Santayana
Heave her up and away we'll go
All on the plains of Mexico

Oh Santayana gained the day
And General Taylor he ran away

Oh General Taylor ran away
At Molly del Rey he gained his fame

When I was a young man in my prime
I'd kiss them pretty girls two at a time

But now I'm old and going grey
Oh rum's my sweetheart every day
