Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep grant no other sailor take My shoes and socks before I wake. Lord guard me in my slumber And keep y hammock on its number. May no clews nor lashings break and let me down before I wake. Keep me safely in thy sight And grant no fire drill tonight. And in the morninglet me wake, reathing scents of sirloin steak. God protect me in my dreams And make this better than it seems. Grant the time may swiftly fly When myself shall rest on high. In a snowy feathr bed, Where I long to rest my head, Far away from all these scenes From the smell of half-done beans. Take me back into the land Where they don't scrub down with sadn, Where no Demon Typhoon blows, Where the women wash the clothes. God thou knowest all my woes, Feed me in my dying throes. Take me back, I'll promise then Never to leave home again. Four Years Later Our Father who are in Washington (Heaven) Plese, dear Father, let me stay, Do not drive me now away. Wipe away my scalding tears And let me stay my thirty years. Please forgive me all my past And things that happened at the most, Do not my request refuse, Let me stay another cruise.
