Treasure Island

Thomas Weelkes

(1576 - 1623 / England)

Come Sirrah Jack Ho


Come sirrah Jack ho,
Fill some tobacco,
Bring a wire and some fire,
Haste haste away,
quick I say,
do not stay,
shun delay,
for I drank none good today.

I swear that this tobacco
Is perfect Trinidad-o;
By the very very Mass,
never never was
better gear
than is here,
by the rood,
for the blood,
it is very very good,
'tis very good.

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
