Fire Down Below

Fire Down Below published on

Fire in the fore top, fire in the main,
Fire in the wilderness, and fire in the chain
Fire, fire, fire down below,
Fetch a bucket of water boys,
There’s fire down below.

Fire round the capstan, fire on the mast,
Fire on the main deck, burning it fast.
Fire, fire, fire down below,
Fetch a bucket of water boys,
There’s fire down below.

Fire in the lifeboat, fire in the gig,
Fire in the pig-stye roasting the pig.
Fire, fire, fire down below,
Fetch a bucket of water boys,
There’s fire down below.

Fire in the store room spoiling the food,
Fire on the orlop burning the wood.
Fire, fire, fire down below,
Fetch a bucket of water boys,
There’s fire down below.

Fire on the waters, fire high above,
Fire in our hearts for the friends that we love.
Fire, fire, fire down below,
Fetch a bucket of water boys,
There’s fire down below.
