Lyrics
The Diamond is a ship, my lads
For the Davis Straits she’s bound
And the key it is all garnished
With Bonnie lassies round
And the captain gives the orders
To sail the ocean wide
And the sun it never sets, my lads
Nor darkness stems the tide

For it’s cheer up, my lads
Let your hearts never fail
For the bonnie ship the Diamond
Goes fishin’ for the whale

Along the key at Peterhead
The lass’ all stand around
Their shawls all tucked about their heads
And salt tears runnin’ down
Now don’t you weep, my bonnie lass’
Though you be left behind
For there is no rose on Greenland’s ice
To make him change his mind

For it’s cheer up, my lads
Let your hearts never fail
For the bonnie ship the Diamond
Goes fishin’ for the whale

Here’s a health to the Resolution
Where wisely lies the Swan
Here’s a health to the battle of the old Montrose
And the Diamond ship of fame
He wears the trousers of the white
And the jackets of the blue
When we return to Peterhead
We’ll, “Hey Sweetheart” to you

For it’s cheer up, my lads
Let your hearts never fail
For the bonnie ship the Diamond
Goes fishin’ for the whale

Well, it’ll be right both day and night
When the Greenland lads come home
Their ships all full of oil me boys
And money to their name
We’ll make the cradles for to rock
And the blankets for to tear
And every lass in Peterhead
Sing, “Hush-a bye, my dear”

For it’s cheer up, my lads
Let your hearts never fail
For the bonnie ship the Diamond
Goes fishin’ for the whale

For it’s cheer up, my lads
Let your hearts never fail
For the bonnie ship the Diamond
Goes fishin’ for the whale
