The song known as " Ankunft in Hamburg," or " Arrival in Hamburg," is well and widely known amongst German tars. It is sung to a melody known as " Holl dy jo nich op," which title gives the chorus to the song.
ANKUNFT IN HAMBURG.
German Version. Immer seine Bries, Dat is Seemans Wies, Dammi, Jungs ick kann
•Eurhaben sehn! -Kock, sy nicht so dumm, Rohr de Arfen um, Wenn se anbrennt deem Schmerkt se nicht schon. Jung, den Buddel her, Schenk Mai rund umher, Giffen jeden Mann en fixen Sluk.-Holl dy jo nich op! Holl dy jo
nich op ! Holl dy jo, un yo ! un yo nich op !
Dar op Bankbord Sied
Is en liitjen Stried.
Jan de Quast dar mit dem langen,
Fritz, Bios um en liitt Deern, Is de Roh nich werth Wat do ick mit so en dummen Witz. Seth, wi hefft bald Band, Deern's geft uns de Hand ; Wenn se uns nich mbgt, socht myjem
so ; Holl dy jo nich op ! Holl dy jo nich
op ! Holl dy jo nich op ! Holl dy jo nich
op !
Recht wergnSgten Muth,
Nu geiht mit de Floth,
Op de Elfen Hamborgs Haben to.
Smiet den Anker ut,
Sett de Sluhinut,
De Captein geiht erstmal na syn Fro :
Achen de grose Luk,
Langssied liggt de Schutt:
So, Lud, fat de Winsch mal kraft'g
an! Holl dy jo nich op! Holl dy jo nich op! Holl dy jo nich op! Holl dy jo nich op!
Wenn't Schlapp leddig is, Gifftet bannig Kies, Junge, denn, musst dat Wergnogen sehn, Moje Pankje an,
English Version. Always a jolly breeze, That is the way of the sailor. Damn you, boys ! haven't you seen
Cuxhaven ? Don't look so silly. Stir the yellow peas; Burnt they don't taste nice. Boy, reach me the bottle. Give each one a drink— Every one in turn. Now then, don't you stop ! Now then, don't you stop ! Now then, don't you stop ! Now then, don't you stop !
There on the starboard side
There's a little row.
Yam mop with a fall, Fred,
For a little girl.
It's not worth the while.
What do I with such a daft joke ?
Look ! we soon have land.
Girls, reach us a hand.
If they don't like us, then we'll shout
at them, "Now then, don't you stop ! Now then, don't you stop ! Now then, don't you stop! Now then, don't you stop ! "
Now with jolly mind,
We go with the tide
Up the Elbe to Hamburg's Haven.
Heave the anchor there :
The Captain first goes to his wife :
Open the big hatchway,
The keel is alongside.
" Now, boys, fast to the windlass.
Now then, don't you stop ! now then,
don't you stop ! Now then, don't you stop ! now then,
don't you stop ! "
When we have discharged, There's a lump of cash. Now, boys, you must see that spree. Now, boys, you must see that spree. Now, boys, you must see that spree.
