The song that the Picard replica sings in Ten Forward is as follows: Come cheer up my lads 'tis to glory we steer, To add something new to this wonderful year To honour we call you not press you like slaves, For who are so free as the sons of the waves Hearts of oak are our ships, jolly tars are our men We always are ready, steady boys, steady We'll fight and we will conquer again and again.
