John Williamson lyrics : "Botany Bay"

Farewell to Old England forever
Farewell to my rum pals as well
Farewell to the well known Old Bailee

Where I used for to cut such a swell

[Chorus]

Singing too-rall, li-oo-rall, li-ad-di-ty,
Singing too-rall, li-oo-rall, li-ay,
Singing too-rall, li-oo-rall, li-ad-di-ty

We're are bound for Botany Bay

[Chorus]


'Taint leaving Old England we cares about,
'Taint 'cos we mispells wot we knows

But becos all we light finger'd gentry
Hop's around with a log on our toes.


[Chorus]

There's the captain as is our commandeer,

there's bo'sun and all the ship's crew
there's first and the second class passengers,
Knows what we poor convicts goes through


[Chorus]


Oh had I the wings of a turtle-dove,
I'd soar on my pinions so high,
Slap bang to the arms of my Polly love,

And in her sweet presence I'd die

[Chorus]


Now all my young Dookies and Duchesses,
Take warning from what I've to say,

Mind all is your own as you touch-es-es,
Or you'll find us in Botany Bay,


[Chorus x2]
