Damsels On The Quay

This song was created for Game of Bands round 129 : "Sea Shanties"

Lyrics:

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.
SHE WASSSSSSSS…..

My Bonny maid from Ireland
Hair and freckles red like a Fire Brand
And her pot o' gold
Was a sight to behold,
And it sure felt better than me dry right hand.

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.
SHE WASSSSSSSS…..

An exotic geisha from old Tokyo,
Her skin was the color of yellow.
When the haggle was done
With her ol' mamma-san
I had the silk purse she hid in her kimono

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.
SHE WASSSSSSSS…..

In a feather'd headdress, my Injun Squaw
I think she said she was a Chippewa,
Didn't want a papoose,
So we used the caboose,
Left me mast dark brown like a grizzly paw.

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.
SHE WASSSSSSSS…..

An Indian girl with a dot, not a feather
Said "blow me down", but I shoulda known better


'Cause even though it was furry,
I ate up her curry
And now I feel under the weather

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.
SHE WASSSSSSSS…..

On holiday from Central Madrid,
All muchachos, her padre forbid,
But his daughter's a chika
Who likes senioritas,
So I left her squirtin' like Ink from a squid!

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.
SHE WASSSSSSSS…..

An ebony goddess from the Cote D'Ivoire
She snuck me in to her French boudoire,
I grabbed her afro
And refused to let go,
Even when she gagged up all her Pinot Noir

Haul Over Hatches, Heave ho and make way
I'm leaving from Port on the Morrow
A Beautiful damsel I'll leave on the quay,
Her eyes and her lips wet with sorrow.

Well one last Hurrah, then it's anchors aweigh,
So let's toast the ones with bad behavior
And fear not, they'll be there, when we come back this way
Cause every dirty girl loves them a sailor(edited)
