Salutations, gentlefolk !

A fine little sloop, from the Delaware came,
To cruise on the seas, and the
Wasp was her name.
With a noble commander, who fear'd not the foe.
And a crew who'd stand fast, let it blow high or low

"Then fill up your glasses, let's laugh, drink and sing,
And cheer the brave
Wasp, which the Britih did sting."
