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


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


'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.


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


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


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]
