Haul Away, Joe

Long Drag Shanty
Away, haul away,
O, haul away together,
Away, haul away,
O, haul away, Joe!

When I was a little lad,
My mother told me,
Away, haul away,
O, haul away together,
That if I did not kiss the girls
My lips would grow moldy
Away, haul away,
O, haul away, Joe!

So first I had a Spanish girl
But she was fat and lazy,
Away, haul away,
O, haul away together,
But now I've got an Irish girl
And she nearly drives me crazy.
Away, haul away,
O, haul away, Joe!

Away, haul away,
O, haul away together,
Away, haul away,
O, haul away, Joe!

King Louis was the king of France
Before the revolution,
Away, haul away,
O, haul away together,
But the people chopped his head off
Which spoiled his constitution
Away, haul away,
O, haul away, Joe!

Away, haul away,
O, haul away together,
Away, haul away,
O, haul away, Joe!
