Fire Maringo

Cotton Screwing Shanty
Lift him up and carry him along,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
Put him down where he belongs,
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

2. Ease him down and let him lay,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
Screw him in and there he'll stay.
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

3. Put him in his hole below,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
Stay he must and then he'll go.
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

4. When I get back to Liverpool town,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
I'll toss a line to little Sally Brown.
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

5. I'll haul her high and haul her low,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
I'll bust her blocks and make her go.
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

6. Sally is a pretty little craft,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
Hot shot to the fore and rounded in the aft.
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

7. Screw the cotton screw him down,
Fire Maringo, fire him away,
Let's get the hell back to Liverpool town.
Fire Maringo, fire him away!
