Shantey time!

Tortuga Queen's a mighty ship
Heave away, haul away!
She sailed out on a southern trip.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


We're Cali born and Cali bred
Heave away, haul away!
Tanned on the arms and thick in the head.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


Our helmsman is not smart at all
Heave away, haul away!
He steered full sail into a squall.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


Tortuga Queen ain't got no sails
Heave away, haul away!
They're all blown off in storms and gales.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


Tortuga Queen ain't got no masts
Heave away, haul away!
They're all knocked down by thundery blasts.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


Australia has such lovely shores
Heave away, haul away!
But we can't go there any more.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


So now we're back in Davisville
Heave away, haul away!
Of dancing at least we'll get our fill.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!


Haul away, you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away!
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!
