Lyrics Wellerman

There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy of Tea
The winds blew up
Her bow dipped down
O blow, my bully boys, blow
Huh
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
She'd not been two weeks from shore when down on her a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore he'd take that whale in tow
Huh
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
Da da da da da da
Da da da da
Da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Before the boat had hit the water the whale's tail came up and caught her
All hands to the side harpooned and fought her when she dived down low
Huh
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
No line was cut
No whale was freed
The Captain's mind was not of greed
And he belonged to the whaleman's creed
She took that ship in tow
Huh
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
Da da da da da da
Da da da da
Da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
For forty days or even more the line went slack then tight once more
All boats were lost
There were only four
But still that whale did go
Huh
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
As far as I've heard the fight's still on
The line's not cut and the whale's not gone
The Wellerman makes his regular call to encourage the Captain crew and all
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
Soon may the Wellerman come to bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done we'll take our leave and go
