Subject: Lyr Req: Sailing in the King's Navy
Several times in singarounds at Holmfirth festivals I have joined in on the chorus of a mock shanty called, I think, Sailing in the King's Navy. I felt an urge to sing it a couple of nights ago before realising that, apart from the chorus, I didn't know it - a substantial drawback.

Nor could I find a trace of it via an internet search.

Hence this thread - can anyone help with the lyric or a source please?
