Codfish

 

Australia, my lads, is a very fine place
Heave away, haul away
To be bound for Australia is no disgrace
We’re bound for Australia

Heave away my bully bully boys
Heave away haul away
Heave away and don’t you make a noise
We’re bound for Australia

Australian girls are very fine girls
With codfish balls they comb their curls
The Cape Cod girls don’t use any combs
They comb their hair with codfish bones

The Cape Cod boys don’t use any sleds
They slide down hills on codfish heads
Melbourne girls sitting in the sun
Melbourne girls here we come
