South Australia

In South Australia I was born!

Heave away! Haul away!

South Australia round Cape Horn!

We're bound for South Australia!


Heave away, you rolling kings,

Heave away!  Haul away!

Heave away! Oh hear me sing

We're bound for South Australia!


As I walked out one morning fair,

It's there I met Miss Nancy Blair.


I shook her up, I shook her down,

I shook her all around the town.


There ain't but one thing grieves my mind,

To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind.


And as you wallop round Cape Horn,

You'll wish to God you'd never been born!
