The Indefatigable Song;

(Sung to the Indefatigable March)

We are some of the Inde lads, sailors of Britain are we,

We man our merchant ships, and we man our navy’s ships,

We are respected upon the high seas.

As we go sailing from shore to shore, ports and hatches battened down,

When we hear our bosun call, hand on deck – one and all,

We are the Inde lads.

(Sung to ‘Anchors Away’)

We are the Inde lads, sailors are we,

We know or seamanship, and we man our nations ships.

We are respected on the high seas,

We proudly fly our ensigns as we sail across those seas.

(Sung to the Indefatigable March)

We are some of the Inde lads, sailors of Britain are we,

We man our merchant ships, and we man our navy’s ships,

We are the Inde lads.
