Row, row! – You bloody bastards.

Row, row! – You sons of whores.

Heave, heave – you bloody bastards.

Close the distance – work those oars.

Into the shadow of the kraken we rowed,

Into the face of death we roared.

Into the jaws of the kraken we thundered,

As the brine beat on the hull of “the hope forlorn”.
