YANKEE WHALERMEN (A Variation of "Spanish Ladies") Farewell and adieu to you Spanish ladies Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain For we've received orders to sail from New England And we hope in a short time to see you again Chorus: We'll rant and we'll roar like true Yankee Whalermen We'll rant and we'll roar on deck and below Until we sight Gayhead off old Martha's Vineyard And straight up the channel to New Bedford we'll go. We hove our our ship to with the wind from the sou'west, boys. We hove our our ship to deep soundings to take 'Twas 45 fathoms with light sandy bottom We squared our main yard and up channel did make. Chorus I went to a dance one night in Tombaz. There were plenty of girls there as fine as you wish. There was one pretty maiden a chewin' tobacco Just like a young kitten a chewin' fresh fish. Chorus Then the signal was sent for the grand ship to anchor And all in the downs that night for to lie Let go your shank painter, let go your cat stopper Haul up your clew garnets, let tacks and sheets fly. Chorus
