Little Sally Rackett

  • (Trad)

    Little Sally Racket
           Haul 'er Away!
    Pawned my favourite jacket
        Haul 'er Away!
    And then she's lost the ticket
        Haul 'er Away!
    To my a hauley high-O!
        Haul 'Er Away!

    Little Nancy Dawson
        Haul 'er Away!
    Ran off with the parson
        Haul 'er Away!
    Now she's got a little bosun
        Haul 'er Away!
    To my a hauley high-O!
        Haul 'Er Away!

    Up my fightin' cocks now
        Haul 'er Away!
    You all get your grog now
        Haul 'er Away!
    For we have worked enough now
        Haul 'er Away!
    To my a hauley high-O!
        Haul 'Er Away!

    (as sung by The McCalmans)
