Miss Lucy Loo (Rolling Down to Trinidad)

Rock-a-block, chock-a-block, roller bowler sailor,
     To me way hay hay ho hu!
Oh, rock-a-block, chock-a-block, roller bowler sailor,
     We're rollin' down to Trinidad to see Miss Lucy Loo!

Bend your backs, take in the slack, roll me over Lucy,
     To me etc.
Oh, bend your backs, take in the slack, roll me over Lucy
     We're rollin' etc.

The ship's all right, the crew is tight, the Old Man's (all in clover)*
*(or  "never sober")

O sing a song, O blow along, turn the blanket over

O, haul away an' get yer pay, O Lucy's on the towline

Hoist her high and hoist her dry, come rock an' roll me over

Now stretch her luff, she's high enough, the end is just in sight, boys

From Shanties from the Seven Seas, Hugill
     Collected in Trinidad
