We're laying in Surrey Dock one day,|
When the mate told us to get under way.
Stormy weather boys, stormy weather boys,
When the wind blows, our barge will go.
2. He's homeward bound but he's out of luck,
3. Then the skipper came aboard with a girl on his arm,
4. So the mate ran forward and the cook fell in the dock,
5. We shored her off and away did go,
6. She fills away and she sails like heck
7. Then up comes a mermaid, covered in mud,
