Song 39: "Santianna Ballad"

O! Santianna fought for fame!
Heave away, Santianna!
And Santianna gained a name
All across the plains of Mexico!

Heave her up, and away we'll go
Heave away, Santianna!
Heave her up, and away we'll go
All across the plains of Mexico!

O! Santianna had a wooden leg
He used it for a cribbage peg

O! Santianna fought for his gold
The deeds he did have oft been told

O! Santianna gain'd the day,
He gain'd the day at Molly-Del-Rey.

O! Santianna fought for his life,
He gained his way in the terrible strife.

O! Santianna's men were brave,
Many found a hero's grave.

O! Santiana won at Molly-Del-Rey
And General Taylor he ran away.

O! Santianna's day is gone,
We left him buried off Cape Horn.

We dug his grave with a golden spade,
And marked the spot where he was laid.

O! Santianna's day is o'er,
Santianna will fight no more.
