Trad. Recording by Madrigirls here


Lift him up and carry him along, Fire Marengo, fire away, Send him down where he belongs, Fire Marengo, fire away.

Stow him down in the hold below, One more turn and then we'll go

Ease him down and let him lay, One more turn and then we're away

When I gets back to the old Brass Coast I'll pass a line to the one I missed most

I'll haul her high, I'll haul her low, I'll bust her blocks and make her go

Isn't she a pretty little craft, Hot shot to the fore and rounded in the aft

Screw the cotton, screw it down Let's get the hell from Sirroc town

Lift him up and carry him along, Send him down where he belongs.
