wellerman lyrics

There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy of Tea

The winds blew up, her bow dipped down
Oh blow, my bully boys, blow

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go

She’d not been two weeks from shore
When down on her a right whale bore

The captain called all hands and swore
He’d take that whale in tow

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go

Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

Before the boat had hit the water
The whale’s tail came up and caught her

All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her
When she dived down low

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go

No line was cut, no whale was freed
The captain’s mind was not of greed

And he belonged to the Whaleman’s creed
She took that ship in tow

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go

Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

For forty days or even more
The line went slack then tight once more

All boats were lost, there were only four
But still that whale did go

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go

As far as I’ve heard, the fight’s still on
The line’s not cut, and the whale’s not gone

The Wellerman makes his regular call
To encourage the captain, crew and all

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum

One day, when the tonguing is done
We’ll take our leave and go
