We set sail at half-past morn,
Looking for a new tomorrow,
Don't know when we're coming home,
So we'll drink, and we'll dance,
And we'll drown our sorrow!

Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!

Now, I don't know what there lies in store,
But it's better than this
That's why I'm willing ,
To stake my claim on a foreign shore,
Whit me spoons, and me fiddle,
