'fThe Men Who Sail Belowv
Now each of us from time to time has gazed upon the sea,
and watched the warships pulling out, to keep this country free.
And most of us have read a book, or heardna usty tale,' A
of the men who sail these ships, through lightening, wind and hall
But thereis a lace within the ship, that legend fails to teach,
that the men dyown there sometimes feel, is out of the Lord's re21Ch-
lt's down below the water-line, and takes a living toll ........ ------- -
a hot metal living hell, that sailors call 4'The Hole.
It houses engines run by air, that makes the shaft go r0uHd,
axplace of fire, noise and heat, that beats their spirit down.
here turbines with the blood of Hell and of an angry hem,
are molded gods without remorse, that tear the men apalt.
Whose threat that from the fires roar, is like a living d0LlbI,
that any minute could with scorn, escape and crush them Qllheu
Where turbines scream like tortured souls, alone and lost IH 1
as ordered from above somewhere, they answer SVCPY ben'
These men who kee the fires lit, and make the engines full,
are strangers to worlgd of light, and rarely see the sun.
They have no time for man or god, no tolerance tor fear,
their aspect pays no living thing. the tribute of a tear. ,tdone
For there's not much a man can do. that these men halfen run '
beneath the decks, deep in the hole, to make these englnlflsn '
And for every hour of every day. they keep the watch IH 9 3
for if the fires ever fail, their ship's a useless shell.
When ships converge to have a war. upon the thraSh1U8 Sea'
the men below just Srimly smile, at what their tate mill' lem
TheY'1'e locked below forever doomed, who hea1'l10bfmdqe ,

For every day's a war down there. when the gauges all lea dead.
twelve hundred degrees ol' raging fire. can kill you Illlghly
So if you ever write their songs, or try to tell their-ntale, il
the very words would make you hear: a turbine s liery wa du!
You. don't hear much ol' these men ot' steel. wht' have nl?lSle",

But l can sing about this plaee. and try to make Wu See'-Q me.
