  WRECK OF THE JULIE PLANTE  

On wan dark night on Lac St. Pierre,
    De win' she blow, blow, blow,
An' de crew of de wood scow "Julie Plante"
    Got scar't an' run below;
For de win' she blow lak hurricane,
    Bimeby she blow some more,
An' de scow bus' up on Lac St. Pierre,
    Wan arpent from de shore.

De Captinne walk on de fronte deck,
    An' walk de hin' deck, too--
He call de crew from up de hole
    He call de cook also.
De cook she's name was Rosie,
    She come from Montreal,
Was chambre maid on lumber barge,
    On de Grande Lachine Canal.

De win' she blow from nor'--eas'--wes'
    De sout' win' she blow, too,
W'en Rosie cry "Mon cher Captinne,
    Mon cher, w'at I shall do?"
Den de Captinne t'row de big ankerre,
    But still de scow she dreef,
De crew he can't pass on de shore,
    Becos' he los' hees skeef.

De night was dark, lak' one black cat,
    De wave run high an' fas',
Wen de Captinne tak' de Rosie girl
    An' tie her to de mas'.
Den he also tak' de life preserve,
    An' jomp off on de lak',
An' say, "Goa Rosie dear,
    I go drown for your sak'."

Nex' morning very early,
    'Bout ha'f-pas' two--t'ree--four--
De Captinne, scow, an' de poor Rosie
    Was corpses on de shore;
For he win' she blow lak' hurricane
    Bimeby she blow some more,
An' de scow bus' up on Lac St. Pierre,
    Wan arpent from de shore.

                        MORAL

Now, all good wood scow sailor man
    Tak' warning by dat storm,
An' go an' marry some nice French girl
    An' leev on wan beeg farm;
De win' can blow lak' hurricane,
    An' s'pose she blow some more,
You can't get drown on Lac St. Pierre,
    So long you stay on shore.

                         William Henry Drummond.
