LYRICS

Way, haul away, we’ll haul away the bowlin’
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.
Way haul away, the packet is a-rollin,’
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.

King Louis was the king of France before the revolution;
King Louis got his head cut off and spoiled his constitution.

 

Way, haul away, we’ll haul for better weather,
Way, haul away, we’ll haul away together.
O when I was just a little lad, or so me Mammi told me,
That if I didn’t kiss the girls me lips would grow all mouldy.
Saint Patrick was a gentleman; he came from decent people.
He built a church in Dublin town and on it put a steeple.
Way, haul away, we’ll haul for better weather,
Way, haul away, we’ll haul away together.
What shall we do with the drunken sailor
Early in the morning.
Way, hay, and up she rises,
Sing hooray and up she rises,
A new day and up she rises,
Early in the morning.
 
Put him in the long boat till he gets sober
Early in the morning.
Put him in the scupper with a hose-pipe on him
Early in the morning.
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Early in the morning.
Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
Early in the morning.
Ho brother Teague, doest hear the decree,
Lillibulero bulenala,
that we shall have a new deputy?
Lillibulero bulenala.
O by my soul it is a Talbote,
and with his appointment the sycophants gloat.
The devious Talbot is now made a Lord;
and with his staunch lads he is going aboard.
All over town the dissidents prate,
with Talbot in charge they’ll soon meet their fate
 
Now that Tyrconnell is coming ashore,
we shall have private commissions galore.
 
There was an old prophecy found in a bog,
 the country’d be ruled by an ass and a dog.
Now this prophecy’s all come to pass,
Talbot’s the dog and Tyrconnell’s the ass.
