Oh the worst old ship that ever set sail,
Sailed out of Harwich on a windy day.....

The Collier Brig

Look for Bob Roberts' repertoire. Spare Hands rendition is on our 3rd album 'The Ballad of Dead Bod'. We sang it at a gig in Barton last night.

Also not trad but we have a new song in our repertoire written by Paul Davenport for us, called 'St Pauli Girls' which has the verse...

From Lowestoft and Lynn, from Harwich and Hull,
We plough the North sea with our holds jam-packed full,
It's the oldest of trades and it's kept Britain strong,
And the Dutchmen and Germans have helped us along.

And we'll roll down the Reeperbahn, roll,
Be the wind foul or be the wind fair,
Yes we'll roll down the Reeperbahn, roll,
Wi them St Pauli girls and their long golden hair.
