about

Trad., Arr., Croche + W.S.S.S

lyrics

When I was a little lad,
Or so my mother told me
Way, haul away,
we’ll haul away, Joe
That if I did not kiss the girls
My lips would grow all mouldy
Way, haul away
We’ll haul away, Joe.

Louis était le roi de France
Avant la révolution
Then he got his head cut off
Which spoiled his constitution.

Mon premier flirt s’appelait Rosie,
Une fille de la rue de Dalby
Then I got a Brooklyn gal
She damn near drove me crazy.

So I got a Tawa girl
And she was kind and tender
She left me for a Aucklander
Elle m’a largué pour un trader
épais comme un jambon beurre

Way, haul away
I’ll sing to you of Nancy
Way, haul away
She’s just my cut and fancy.

Oh, once I was in Napier
Workin' at the New World
Et me voilà seul comme un chien
Vendeur de pompes à Graslin

The cook is in the galley
Making duff so handy
Le captain dans sa cabine
Se la colle au brandy

Way, haul away
The good ship is a-bowling
Way, haul away
The sheet is now a-blowing.

Way, haul away
We’ll haul away together
Way, haul away
We’ll haul for better weather.
