The Island Lass 1. Our packet is the Island Lass Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low! There's a laddie howlin' at the main top mast Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low! 2. The old man hails from Barbados He's got the name of "Hammer Toes" 3. He gives us bread as hard as brass Our junk's as salt as a bailer's arse. 4. The monkey's rigged in a soldier's clothes Where he got 'em from, God only knows. 5. We'll haul 'em high and let 'em dry We'll trice them up into the sky. 6. It's up aloft that yard must go Up aloft from down below. 7. Lowlands, me boys, and up she goes Get changed, me boys, to your shore-going clothes. JB
