The Ebeneezer I shipped on board of th' Ebeneezer Every day you "Scrub and grease 'er" Send us aloft to scrape 'er down And if we growl they'll knock us down cho: Oh, git along boys, Git along, do; Be handy, boys, be handy. Our first mates name was Dickie Green, sir, The dirtiest man you ever seen, sir! Walking the quarter with a bucko cap, He thought himself no common chap. A Boston buck for second greaser, He used to ship in Limejuice greasers. The Limejuice greasers got too hot; He made a jump for Boston dock. We had no spuds for our dinner, As sure as I'm a living sinner; Our bread was tough as any brass And our meat was as salt as Lot's wife's. . . . from Shanteymen and Shantyboys, Doerflinger RG
