The Gals o' Chile To Chile's coast we are bound away Tim me heave-ho, hang 'er Hilo To Chile's coast we are bound away An' we'll dance an' all drink pisco! We are bound away at the break o' day Where the little Spanish gals are so bright an' gay Tim me heave-ho, hang 'er Hilo Sing olay for them Dago gals! An' when we get to Vallipo, Timme heave-ho etc. An' when we get to Vallipo, We'll dance etc. Dance the gals up the street with a roll-'n'-go, Grab 'em round the middle an' we won't let go. Timme etc. Them gals o' Chile, they are hard to beat. From truck to keel they are trim an' sweet, They're all a-pullin' on the ol' main-sheet. Them senoritas, they are smart and gay, They dance an' drink till the break o' day, Then clean ye out an' blow yer pay. Rosita, Anna, and Carmen too, They'll greet ye with a hullabaloo, An' soon ye'll know what they can do. My trim little frigate is a very smart craft, She's armed to the teeth both fore 'n' aft, Sharp at the bows with a fine view abaft. Them ol' senyoras, as we know well They're red-hot divils drom the other side o' hell An' ye'll niver get a chance for to ring a Chile bell When the time comes for to sing farewell Goodbye to the gals an' our money as well Callyo, Coquimbo, an' ol' Corynel From Shanties from the Seven Seas, Hugill RG
