BOLD RILEY

Oh the rain it rains all day long,
Bold Riley-o, Bold Riley,
And the roaring wind, it blows so strong,
Bold Riley-o has gone away.

Chorus
Goodbye my sweetheart, goodbye my dear-o,
Bold Riley-o, Bold Riley,
Goodbye my darling, goodbye my dear-o,
Bold Riley-o has gone away.

Well come on, Mary, don't look glum,
Bold Riley-o, Bold Riley,
Come White-stocking Day, you'll be drinkin' rum,
Bold Riley-o has gone away.

(Chorus)

We're outward bound for the Bengal Bay,
Bold Riley-o, Bold Riley
Get bending, me lads, it's a hell-of-a-way,
Bold Riley-o has gone away.

(Chorus x 2)

this is very similar to what the Pyrates Royale do...
