"Glencannon" Theme Song Lyrics as recalled by
Dan Coli, Richmond, Virginia, USA <danlee01@aol.com)
All I can remember are the opening words:
"From Peru to Honolulu to the sunny shores of Spain"
And the final words:
"Glencannon, Glencannon, tough as a roving buccaneer,
Glencannon, Glencannon, the rough and ready Inchliffe Castle Engineer.
Glencanon!"


=========
"Glencannon"     Theme song lyrics as recalled by
Graham Clark, Kent, UK<intray@partnersinp.demon.co.uk> (verse 1)
Mike Jittlov, USA <mike@:wizworld.com> (verse 2)

From Peru to Honolulu
To the rocky shores of Maine
From the River Plate to Bristol
Or the sunny coast of Spain
When a harbour brawl is brewing
And therešs trouble in the air
You can bet your bottom dollar
That Glencannon will be there!
Glencannon! Glencannon!
Tough as a roving buccanneer!
Glencannon! Glen-cannon!
The canny Inchcliffe Castle engineer!
There's a salty Scottish seadog
Lives on trouble, so they say!
It's remarkable what he can get
And then forget to pay!
So when you hear the bagpipes wailing
On a foreign shore,
You can clear the decks for action
'Cause Glencannon's off to war!
Glencannon! Glencannon!
Tough as a roving buccanneer!
Glencannon! Glen-cannon!
The canny Inchcliffe Castle engineer!

=========
"Bos'n" / "Bo's'n" - variant spellings of "boatswain"
Boatswain - a petty officer, or a warrant officer who is responsible
for the maintenance of a ship and its equipment.
