Congo River

Oh was you ever on the Congo River
Blow, boys, blow!
Black fever makes the white man shiver
Blow, me bullyboys, blow!

A Yankee ship came down the river
Blow, boys, blow!
Her masts and yards they shone like silver
Blow, me bullyboys, blow!

And blow me boys and blow forever
Blow, boys, blow!
Aye, blow me down the Congo River
Blow, me bullyboys, blow!

Yonder comes the Arrow packet
She fires her guns can´t you hear the racket

What do think she had for cargo
Why, black sheep that had run the embargo


Who do you think was the skipper of her
Why, Bully Hayes, the sailor of her

Who do think was the first mate of her
Why Shanghai Brown from Hells half-acre


And what do you think they get for supper?
Oh, a punch in the mouth and a roll in the skuppers

And what do you think they had for dinner
Why a monkey's heart and a donkey´s liver

(Chorus) (x2)
