Our ol’ man said to me one day,
– High-ee-yo – ho-ho, High-ee-yo – ho-ho – ho-ho!
Let’s git aboard of our packet ship, an’ we’ll roll’er ‘crosst the Bay – ,
– Ah – ha – ! me yellar gals,
– Good mornin’ ladies all!

Oh, fare-ye-well, I wish ye well,
We’re outward bound on the mornin’ tide, this packet wuz bound ter hell.

* 3 *

We sailed away to the White Man’s Grave,
The Yaller Jack it wiped us out, the divil a man wuz saved.

* 4 *

We shipped some monkeys for the crew,
Our bosun wuz a great big ape, the ‘sails’ a kinkajou.
