Famous song about the loss of the expedition searching for the Northwest Passage. Not long ago one of the guys from this crew was dug up, perfectly frozen, from the ice, and it turns out they had lead poisoning from the canned food they'd been eating on their voyage. So instead of heading towards civilization when their ship foundered, they headed off into the blizzard and perished.
