Oh, for 'is heart is like the sea,
Ever hopen, brave an' free,
And his girl must lonely be,
Til 'is ship comes back.

But if love's the best of all,
What can a man befall?
For every girl at all,
They all love Jack!

From Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman by William Main Doerflinger (1951, '72, '91)
