The M'Man's Blood

Tremble worry cringe
Please Don't Disgrace the Family Name
Make Us Proud
All the mothers' wishes and fathers' expectations
Bound up in a little piece of sailcloth
Tucked inside the pockets of the
M'man's coat

Do As Your Captain Commands
Uphold Honour
All the hopes and ambitions pinned to the
Of the
M'man's hat
Tremble worry cringe

Don't be a coward don't be a waste don't be what you shouldn't
Be What We Wanted In A Son
Tremble worry cringe in between
Following all the tearful goodbyes and stern instructions
Soaked up in the sand
With the
M'man's blood
