Mudcatter Mick Pearce provided this set of lyrics, including the following transcription remarks:

* Cape sao Vicente? (Portuguese rather than Spanish)
** Figuera (da Foz)?

G Nevard stopped by to suggest ** as "Hyères", a port east of Marseilles, rather than Hiera, and to correct "admiral's pouch" in the final line to "admiral's barge":

The song is also associated with the singing of Martyn Wyndham-Read.
