A Quote by Charles Dibdin on friendship, greatness, honor, and love

Spanking Jack was so comely, so pleasant, so jolly, Though winds blew great guns, still he'd whistle and sing; Jack loved his friend, and was true to his Molly, And if honour gives greatness, was great as a king.

His form was of the manliest beauty, His heart was kind and soft; Faithful below he did his duty, But now he's gone aloft.
