Female and strong

Jeannie, Jeannie, yellow and black
lying empty and waiting to embark.
Into the bay and round the mount
Real Cornish elm helping you out.
Oars in the water
oars in the air
powering through the salty swell

Mounts Bay gig (1)

I was once called "Sally" and built by Peter
Im solid, Im solid there's is no mistake
of wood that is seasoned and designed to shape

Mounts Bay gig (2)

My oars lie waiting for hands to grip
Im branded with white lettering
and "Mounts Bay" in black.

Mounts Bay gig (3)

Come race me, come race me
in Cornish waters
and see if you have what you need to challenge me
