Randy Dandy O

Lyrics courtesy of www.sailorsongs.com

Now we are ready to head for the Horn,
Way, ay, roll an' go!

Our boots an' our clothes boys are all in the pawn,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away,
Way, ay, roll an' go!

The anchor's on board an' the cable's all stored,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Soon we'll be warping her out through the locks,
Way, ay, roll an' go!

Where the pretty young gals all come down in their flocks,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away,
Way, ay, roll an' go!

The anchor's on board an' the cable's all stored,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Come breast the bars, bullies, an' heave her away,
Soon we'll be rollin' her 'way down the Bay,

Sing goodbye to Sally an' goodbye to Sue,
For we are the boy-os who can kick 'er through.

Oh, man the stout caps'n an' heave with a will,
Soon we'll be drivin' her 'way down the hill.

Heave away, bullies, ye parish-rigged bums,
Take yer hands from yer pockets and don't suck yer thumbs.

Roust 'er up, bullies, the wind's drawin' free,
Let's get the glad-rags on an' drive 'er to sea.

We're outward bound for Vallipo Bay,
Get crackin', m' lads, 'tis a hell o' a way!
