SAILOR SHANTIES

Blow the man down ~ Lyrics

(HALLIARDS SHANTY)

1. Oh blow the man down, bullies, blow the man down.
To me Way-ay, blow the man down.
Oh blow the man down, bullies, blow him away.
Oh gimme some time to blow the man down.

2. We went over the Bar on the thirteenth of May.
To me Way-ay, blow the man down.
The Galloper jumped, and the gale came away.
Oh gimme some time to blow the man down.]

3. Oh the rags they was gone, and the chains they was jammed,
And the skipper sez he, "Let the weather be hanged."

4. Äs I was a-walking down Winchester Street,
A saucy young damsel I happened to meet.

5. Ï sez to her, "Polly, and how d'you do?"
Sez she, "None the better for seein' of you."

6. Oh, it's sailors is tinkers, and tailors is men.
And we're all of us coming to see you again.

7. So we'll blow the man up, and we'll blow the man down.
And we'll blow him away into Liverpool Town.
