The Boys of Those Days
By Colin W. Hewitt

Almost 'H.O s' to a man,
The Girls of those days,
Sweet Jenny Wrens,
Who cared for the boys,
As well as the Boats,
For the night, yet to come.

We remember the ones,
Who didn't come home,
These are the memories,
So Sad, So Sweet,
Now it is time,
To say our Good bye.

The years have past,
As swift as the boats,
Goodbye, dear shipmate.
Goodbye, dear oppo,
Goodbye, dear friend,
For you we have recalled,
For, so long, so long,
Good bye. Good bye.
