Traditional & Folk Songs with lyrics, midis & Mp3
Was you never down the Congo River,
Blow, boys, blow;
Where the fever makes the white man shiver,
Blow, me bully boys, blow.
Yonder comes a Yankee packet
She fires her guns, don't you hear the racket
Oh, how do you know she's a Yankee clipper?
Why, her masts and yards, they shine like silver
Oh, what do you think the crew eats for dinner?
Oh, a monkey's arse and a sandfly's liver
And who do you think is the skipper of her?
Oh, a blackjack slave, the bowery runner
And what do you think they get for supper?
Oh, a punch in the mouth and a roll in the skuppers
(Repeat 1st verse)
