Randy Dandy Oh Now we are ready to head for the Horn Way Hey Roll and go! Our boots and our clothes, boys, are all in the pawn To me rollicking randy dandy, oh! (can use verse 2 as a chorus) Heave a pawl, heave away, The anchor's on board and the cable's all stored Come breast the bar, bullies and heave her away Soon we'll be rolling her 'way down the bay. Soon we'll be warping her out through the locks Where the pretty young girls all come down in flocks. Sing goodbye to Sally and goodbye to Sue For we are the bullies that can kick her through. Oh man the stout capst'n and heave with a will Soon we'll be driving her 'way down the hill. Heave away, bullies, you parish-rigged bums Take your hands from your pockets and don't suck your thumbs. Roust 'er up, bullies, the wind's drawing free Let's get the rags up and drive 'er to sea. We're outward bound for Vallipo Bay Get crackin' m'lads, 'tis a Hell of a way.
