    We were homeward bound one night on the deep
    Swinging in my hammock I fell asleep
    I dreamed a dream and I thought it true
    Concerning Franklin and his gallant crew

    With 100 seamen he sailed away
    To the frozen ocean in the month of May
    To seek a passage around the pole
    Where all poor sailors do sometimes go.

    Through cruel hardships they vainly strove
    Their ships on mountains of ice was drove
    Only the Eskimo with his skin canoe
    Was the only one that ever came through

    In Baffin's Bay where the whale fish blow
    The fate of Franklin no man may know
    The fate of Franklin no tongue can tell
    And Lord Franklin among his seamen do dwell

    And now my burden it gives me pain
    For my Lord Franklin I'd sail the main
    Ten thousand pounds I would freely give
    To know Lord Franklin, and where he is.
