fav’ring breeze; but oh much fritter than all these, but oh much sweeter than all these is Jack's delight his lovely Naa.

II
The needle faithfull to the north,
To thew of constancy the worth,
A curious leffon teaches man :
The needle time may tuft, a squall
Capíze the Binnacle and all,
Lei seamanship do all i can:
My love in worth shall big ber rise,
Nór time shall ruft nor squalls capsize
My faith and truth to Lovely Nan.

III
When in the Bilboas I was penn'd,
For serving of a worthless friend,
And every creature from me ran ;
No thip performing Quarantine
Was ever so deferied feen ;
None hail'd me woman, child, nor man,
But though false friendship's rails were furld,
Though cut adrift by all the world,

I'd all the world in Lovely Nan.
IV
I love my duty, love my friend :
Love truth and merit to defend,
To moan their iois who hazard

ran,
I love to take an honeft

part, Love beauty and a spotless beart, By manners love to thew ibe man, To fail through life by honour's breeze, 'Twas all along of loving these First made me doat on Lovely Nan.
