Some scenes of the Royal Navy in the Napoleonic wars set to the song "Spanish Ladies".

Lyrics:
Farewell and adieu
To you Spanish Ladies
Farewell and adieu
To you ladies of Spain
For we've received orders
For to sail for Old England
But we hope in a short time
To see you again

We'll rant and we'll roar
Like true British sailors
We'll rant and we'll roar
Along the salt seas
Until we strike soundings
In the Channel of Old England
From Ushant to Scilly
Is thirty-five leagues

We hove our ship to
With the wind from sou'west, boys
We hove our ship to
Our soundings for to see
Then the signal was made
For the grand fleet to anchor
And all in the Downs
That night for to meet

We'll rant and we'll roar
Like true British sailors
We'll rant and we'll roar
Along the salt seas
Until we strike soundings
In the Channel of Old England
From Ushant to Scilly
Is thirty-five leagues

Now let every man
Toss off a full bumper
Now let every man
Toss off a full bowl
And we'll drink and be merry
And drown melancholy
Singing, here's a good health
To all true-hearted souls

We'll rant and we'll roar
Like true British sailors
We'll rant and we'll roar
Along the salt seas
Until we strike soundings
In the Channel of Old England
From Ushant to Scilly
Is thirty-five leagues
