Wellerman – Sea Shanty lyrics

by

Nathan Evans


There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy O' Tea
The winds blew up, her bow dipped down
Oh, blow, my bully boys blow

She'd not been two weeks from shore
When down on her, a white whale boar
The Captain called all hands
And swore he'd take that whale in tow (uh!)

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguing is done
We'll take our leave and go

Take our leave and go

Soon may the Wеllerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
Onе day when the tonguing is done
We'll take our leave and go

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

She'd not been two weeks from shore
When down on her, a white whale boar
The Captain called all hands
And swore he'd take that whale in tow (uh!)

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguing is done
We'll take our leave and go

Take our leave and go

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguing 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 tonguing is done
We'll take our leave and go

Take our leave and go

Take our leave and go
