Haul Away Joe

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

Chorus
Way, haul away, we’ll haul for better weather,
Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.

King Louis was the King of France
Before the Revolution,

Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe,
King Louis got his head cut off
Which spoiled his constitution.

Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.

Chorus

Oh the cook is in the galley
Making duff so handy
Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe,
And the captain’s in his cabin

Drinkin’ wine and brandy
Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.

Chorus

First I had a Spanish Girl, But she got fat and lazy

Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe

Now I have a Kiwi girl, she damn near drives me crazy

Way, haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
