Oh! The smartest packet ye can find,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
Is the Ol' "`Wildcat"' of the Swallowtail Line!
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:
To me Hey, Rig-a-jig, in a jaunting car!
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
With Eliza Lee all on my knee,
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!

2. Oh! the Ol' ``Wildcat'' of the Swallowtail Line,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
She's never a day behind her time!
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:

3. O, we're outward bound for New York Town,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
Them bowery gals we'll waltz around.
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:

4. When we've stowed our freight at the West Street Pier,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
It's home to Liverpool then we'll steer.
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:

5. O, them bowery gals will give us fun,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
Chatham Street dives is home from home.
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:

6. When we all gets back to Liverpool town,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
I'll stand ye whiskies all around.
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:

7. O, heave a pawl -- o, bear a hand,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
Just one more pull and make her stand.
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:

8. O, when I gets home across the sea,
Ah Hey! Ah Ho! Are you most done?
Eliza, will you marry me?
So clear away the track an' let the bulgine run!
Chorus:
