LYRICS

Oh, Lukey’s boat is painted green
Aha, me b’ys!
Oh, Lukey’s boat is painted green
the finest boat you’ve ever seen.
Aha me riddle I day!

Oh, Lukey’s boat got cotton sails
and planks put on with galvanized nails

Oh, Lukey’s boat for a high stopped jib
and a patent block to here foremast head.

Oh, Lukey’s rolling out his grub
One split pea in a ten pound tub

Oh, Lukey sail down the shore
to catch some fist from Labrador

Oh, Lukey said “The blinds are down,
the blinds are down so my wife is dad and underground.”

Oh, say Lukey “I don’t care
cuase I’ll get me another in the fall of the year”

Aunt virtue Kean, she wrote this song
while up with the doctors all night long.

Oh, Lukey’s boat is painted green
the finest boat you’ve ever seen.
