The full lyrics

Good Mornin Ladies All A

We are outward bound for Mobile Town,
– With a heave-O, haul!
An’ we’ll heave the ol’ – wheel round an’ round,
– Good mornin’, ladies all!

* 2 *

An’ when we get to Mobile town,
Oh, ’tis there we’ll drink an’ sorrow drown.

* 3 *

Them gals down south are free an’ gay,
Wid them we’ll spend our hard-earned pay.

* 4 *

We’ll swing around, we’ll have good fun,
An’ soon we’ll be back on the homeward run.

* 5 *

An’ when we get to Bristol town,
For the very last time we’ll waltz around.

* 6 *

With Pool and Meg an’ Sally too,
We’ll drink an’ dance wid a hullabaloo.

* 7 *

So a long goodbye to all you dears,
Don’t cry for us, don’t waste yer tears.
