Can Ye Dance the Polka? a.k.a. New York Gals

As I walked down the Broadway, one morning in July
a met a maid, she asked my trade, a sailor John said I

and away you santy, my dear Annie

Oh you New York girls, can't ye dance the polka?
to Tiffany's I took her, I did not mind expense
I bought her two gold earrings, they cost me fifteen cents


She said you Limejuice Sailor, now walk me home you may
when we got to her cottage door she this to me did day
I kissed her hard and proper before her flashman came

goodbye you little New York Girl, I know your little game
I joined a Yankee bloodboat we sail in early morn

I'll never court a maid again, I'm safer off Cape Horn
So I wrapped my glad rags 'round me and to the docks did steer

goodbye you little New York gals, I'll stick with rum and beer CHORUS
