GUEST,Bradfordian Origins: Song of the Jolly Roger(Chudleigh Candish (22) RE: Origins: Up with the Jolly Roger Boys 26 Jun 03


JOLLY ROGER - words & Music C.F. Chudleigh Candish Pub 1911
(certain words are speled incorrectly so as to emphasise the length of note)

It's up with the jolly roger boys, & off we go to sea
There's heaps of fun when the jolly rogers hung and the wind is
on the lea, and the wind is on the lea
Blow hi, blow hi, blow lo, blow lo, its off to sea we go
Without a single light, in the pale moon liiiiight,
Us bold buccaneers wiiiill gooo.
Up with the jolly roger boys, & fling it to the breeze
Get gun & cutlas well in trim, for a treasure ship to seize
Yo ho, yo ho, yo ho, yo ho. Its out to sea we go.
For a ship from Spain, we're off across the maaaain
Like bold buccaneers Yooo hooo
Sea dogs of old, sea dogs of old, they chased the beggars across
the sea ha ha ha ha ha ha ha he
And made them pay their toooollll
Oh down to the bottom of the sea they go
Ho ho ho ho ho ho
West men, west men, never,never feared the fooe

Here's to each man, each man of the jolly, jolly crew
Who sailed the deep blue sea, who sailed the deep blue sea,
who sailed the deep blue seeeeaaa
With the jolly jolly roger flying bold and free
And a prize on the Spanish main maybe
And then we come home, yo ho yo ho
And the girls will be waiting on the quay I knoooow
For the man who sailed the main
For the man who sailed the main
Yo ho ho ho yo ho ho ho yo ho
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha . . . ..Yo hoooooooooooo.

Well known in Male Voice Choir Circles
I have a TTBB arrangement,
Did I mention I do Male Voice Choir?
And if you want a CD, then chances are that a Male Voice Choir near you has it on a CD - or one should be available through the Internet
