John Kanaka
I thought I heard the old man say

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

There’s work tomorrow but no work today

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

Tuliae oh tuliae, John Kanaka-naka tuliae
We’re bound away from London Bay

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

We’re bound away at the break of day

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

Tuliae oh tuliae, John Kanaka-naka tuliae
It’s just one thing that grieves my mind

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

To leave my wife and child behind

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

Tuliae oh tuliae, John Kanaka-naka tuliae
They’ll wave farewell down on the quay

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

To wait and fear and weep for me

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

Tuliae oh tuliae, John Kanaka-naka tuliae
It’s rotten wheat and weevily bread

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

And it’s pump or drown the old man said

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

Tuliae oh tuliae, John Kanaka-naka tuliae
It’s one more pull and that’ll do

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

And we’re the bullies for to pull her through

John Kanaka-naka tuliae

Tuliae oh tuliae, John Kanaka-naka tuliae
Oh, California
Come from Salem city with a washbowl on my knee I’m going to California, the gold dust for to see!

It rained all night day I left, the weather it was dry.

The sun’s so hot I froze to death, oh brothers don’t you cry!
“Chorus”
Oh California! That’s the land for me!

I’m off to San Francisco, with a washbowl on my knee!
I jumped on board the Lisa ship and traveled o’er

The sea,

And every time I thought of home I wished it wasn’t me!

The vessel reared like any horse that had of oats a wealth,

I found it wouldn’t throw me, so I thought I’d throw myself!
“Chorus”
I thought of all the pleasant times we’ve had together here.

I thought I ought to cry a bit but couldn’t shed a tear.

The pilot’s bread was in my mouth, the gold dust in my eye,

Although I’m going far away, dear brothers don’t you cry!


“Chorus”
And when I get to ‘Frisco boys, it’s then I’ll look around

And when I see the gold lumps there, I’ll pick them off the ground.

We’ll scrape the mountains clean, me boys, we’ll drain the rivers dry!

A pocket full of rocks bring home, Oh brothers don’t you cry!



“Chorus”

Drunken Sailor
What’s to do with a drunken sailor?

What’s to do with a drunken sailor?

What’s to do with a drunken sailor?

Early in the morning?


Chorus:

Way-ay and up she rises,

Way-ay and up she rises,

Way-ay and up she rises,

Early in the morning?
Put him the scuppers with a hosepipe on him,

(repeat two times)

Early in the morning

Chorus:
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,

(repeat two times)

Early in the morning

Chorus:
Put him the bilge and make him drink it.

(repeat two times)

Early in the morning

Chorus:
Tie him to the topmasts when she’s

yardarm under (repeat two times)

Early in the morning

Chorus:
That’s what we do with a drunken sailor

(repeat two times)

Early in the morning

Chorus:
Temperance lectures will never save him

(repeat two times)

Early in the morning

Chorus:

Roll the Chariot
Chorus:

So we’ll roll the old chariot along

We’ll roll the old chariot along

We’ll roll the old chariot along

And we’ll all hang on behind
Why a drop of Nelson’s blood wouldn’t do

us any harm

A drop of Nelson’s blood wouldn’t do us

any harm


A drop of Nelson’s blood wouldn’t do us

any harm


And we’ll all hang on behind

Chorus:
Why a quiet watch below wouldn’t do us any harm

(Repeat two times)

And we’ll all hang on behind.

Chorus:
A good featherbed wouldn’t do us any harm

(Repeat two times)

And we’ll all hang on behind.

Chorus:
Yes, a nice Irish stew wouldn’t do us any harm

(Repeat two times)

And we’ll all hang on behind.

Chorus:
Why a night with the girls wouldn’t do us any harm

(Repeat two times)

And we’ll all hang on behind.

Chorus:
Yes, a trip on the Euterpe wouldn’t do us any harm

(Repeat two times)

And we’ll all hang on behind.
