Subject: Lyr Req: Picking up the LIzard in the morning.

Can helpful person supply a title or first line for the following lyrics which I dimly remember:

We're tired of it all,
The strange (?) ports of call
The ? we've seen
And the roads we've been,
But only friendly gales,
Will fill up our sails
We're picking up the Lizard in the morning.

Many thanks in advance.

We've been down the coast of Spain
round the Horn and back again
We're picking up the Lizard in the morning
we've seen China and Peru
Labrador and Java too
We're picking up the Lizard in the morning
Chorus
We're tired of it all
the Queer ports we call
the queer ports we've seen
and the roads we've been
and the only friendly gale
that will fill up our sail
we're picking up the Lizard in the morning


I'm not so sure of the words
but it was something like the above
There are more verses but lost in the haze

For those who are not seafarers
"The Lizard" refers to Lizard Head

No Idea who did it - It' an old sea Shanty

The last chorus went something like the following :-

Ans soon we shall be
a'dancing on the Quay
Safe home at last
with the voyage past
and the only thing for me
is to go back to sea
We're picking up the Lizard in the mprning
