  • Though spelled incorrectly in the following lyric, the proper spelling is "jib sheets" so I've entered it that way.

    Usage:

    The captain stood on the quarterdeck,/The ice was in his eye;/"Overhaul, overhaul! Let your gibsheets fall,/And you'll put your boats to sea, brave boys..." -- "Greenland Whale Fisheries," traditional, arr. the Pogues, c. 1985
