HILO, BOYS, HILO

A blackbird sat in a gooseberry tree
Hilo, boys, Hilo
A-ping-a-pong-in' on his ol' banjee
Hilo, somebody, below!

The blackbird sang unto the crowv,
I'll soon be takin' you in tow,

Said thc blackbird to the crow,
Come down below with yer blackfaced crew.

The crow flew down to Mobile Town,
Met a high yeller gal called Sally Brown.

Them yaller gals we do adore,
They'll drink ye skint an' ask for more.

The blackbird sang an' the crow said "caw."
Got ter set this sail by half pas' four.

High an' dry we'll hoist her high,
Hoist her high for a bulgine pie.

From Shanties from the Seven Seas, Hugill
