Like so many deep-sea sailors songs this is a powerful warning - don't get pie-eyed, don't trust those who would take your money and don't end up on a ship bound for the Arctic without out any gear to keep you safe and warm on a yard arm in the ice and snow. For some in those times, the opportunity make quick money could quickly lead to a man going off into unimaginable hardships, and no doubt like many people round the world today they found ways to justify what they did. You can almost hear them saying 'These sailors, you know, they're not saints, They know how it works and they're so tough they like it out there - they don't feel these things like you or I... '
