With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the Ahto Grenadier.
With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the Ahto Grenadier.

Those heroes of antiquity ne'er saw a cannon ball
Or knew the force of powder to slay their foes withal.
But our brave boys do know it, and banish all their fears,
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.

Whene'er we are commanded to storm the palisades
Our leaders march with fusees, and we with hand grenades.
We throw them from the glacis, about the enemies' ears.
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.

And when the siege is over, we to the town repair
The townsmen cry, "Hurrah, boys, here comes a Grenadier!
Here come the Grenadiers, my boys, who know no doubts or fears!
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.

Then let us fill a bumper, and drink a health to those
Who carry caps and pouches, and wear the louped clothes.
May they and their commanders live happy all their years
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.
Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the Ahto Grenadier.
You, Sir, get +100 points of awesome. PRESENT!

EDIT: Also, I have 23 Ships of the Line at the ready, including six First Rates. They should sort out any waterborne threats.
