Jimmy's Cruise in the Pinafore

Search
and Other Stories from Aunt Jo's Scrap-Bag.

(1879)


SIR JOSEPH PORTER, K.C.B.:
I am the monarch of the Sea,
The ruler of the Queen's Navee,--
When at anchor here I ride,
My bosom swells with pride,
And I snap my fingers at a foeman's taunts.


COUSIN HEBE:
And so do his sisters, and his cousins, and his aunts
His sisters and his cousins!
Whom he reckons by the dozens,
And his aunts!


RALPH RACKSTRAW:
"I am the lowliest tar
That sails the water.
And you, proud maiden, are
My captain's daughter."


JOSEPHINE:
"Refrain, audacious tar.
Your suit from pressing;
Remember what you are,
And whom addressing."


LITTLE BUTTERCUP:
For I am called Little Buttercup,--dear Little Buttercup,
Though I never could tell why;
But still I'm called Buttercup,--poor Little Buttercup,
Sweet Little Buttercup I!


CAPTAIN CORCORAN:
Fair moon, to thee I sing
Bright regent of the heavens;
Say, why is every thing
Either at sixes or at sevens!


BILL BOBSTAY, THE BOS'N:
He is an Englishman!
For he himself has said it,
And it's greatly to his credit
That he is an Englishman.


DICK DEADEYE:
"I'm ugly too, aint I?"
