Treasure Island

Charles Thatcher

(1852 - 1878 / Brighton, England)

The New-Chum Swell

I’ll sing just now a little song,
For you must understand,
’Tis of a fine young gentleman,
That left his native land—
That bid his ma and pa farewell,
And started brave and bold,
In a ship of fourteen hundred tons,
To come and dig for gold.

[Hata Bildir]
