Lyrics: James Richardson.
Tune: “A Life on the Ocean Wave.”


Hurrah for the men who work,
Whatever their trade may be;
Hurrah for the men who wield the pen,
For those who plow the sea;
And for those who earn their bread
By the sweat of an honest brow;
Hurrah for the men who dig and delve
And they who reap and sow!
Hurrah for the men who work,
Whatever their trade may be;
Hurrah for the men who wield the pen,
For those who plow the sea.

Hurrah for the sturdy arm,
Hurrah for the steady will,
Hurrah for the worker’s health and strength,
Hurrah for the worker’s skill!
Hurrah for the open heart,
Hurrah for the noble aim,
Hurrah for the loving, quiet home,
Hurrah for an honest name!
Hurrah for the sturdy arm,
Hurrah for the steady will,
Hurrah for the worker’s health and strength,
Hurrah for the worker’s skill!

Hurrah for the men who strive,
Hurrah for the men who save,
Who sit not down and drink till they drown,
But struggle and breast the wave.
Hurrah for the men on the land
And they who are on the sea;
Hurrah for the men who are bold and brave,
The good, the true, and the free!
Hurrah for the men who strive,
Hurrah for the men who save,
Who sit not down and drink till they drown,
But struggle and breast the wave.
