Whaleboat Malarkey

Whaleboat Malarkey

Tell me, what is this sailboat's name?
It's the whaleboat, Malarkey!

Tell me, what is this sailboat's name?
It's the whaleboat, Malarkey!

Who is the man that built this fine boat?
Richardson, Richardson built this fine boat.

And now me boys, we are bound out to sea,
Windward Caroline, come down to me.

She's lovely aloft and she's lovely below,
But best on her back as you very well know.

Pick her up boys, and bring her down,
Hang on tight as she bounces around.

The blackbird sang and the crow did caw,
Got to set this sail by half past four.

I'd give the world, boys, and all I know,
To turn and roll with me Lucy, oh.

Away, away, in Saint Georges town,
The rats come butting the houses down.
Note: The boat is alternatively "the Good Boat",
      "The Saiboat", etc., and is named the "Malachi",
      or the "Molokai". Pick a number. RG
