Blow the Man Down/Radcliffe Highway

 

Oh as I was a-walking down Radcliffe Highway
To me, whay-hay, blow the man down
As I was a-walking down Radcliffe highway
Oh give me some time to blow the man down

A charming flash clipper come sailing my way
I hailed her in English, she answered Yar Volt!

I hove her my tow line and got her in tow
Yard arm to yard arm down the street we did go

When the yard she goes up, the block they’ll come down
Oh, up a-loft this old yard she must go

Oh another pull and we’ll belay. Belay there!
