Randy Dandy-O

One of our favourites, this is a great 'join in' song that has rattled the Red Lion's windows more than once.


Now we are ready to head for the Horn,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Our boots an' our clothes boys are all in the pawn,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
The anchor's on board an' the cable's all stored,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Soon we’ll be warping her out through the locks
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Where the pretty young girls all come down in their flocks
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away,…

Come breast the bars, bullies, and heave her away,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Soon we'll be rollin’ her ‘way down the Bay,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away,…

Say goodbye to Sally and goodbye to Sue,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
For we are the boy-os who can kick her through,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away,…

Man the stout caps'n an' heave with a will,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Soon we'll be drivin' her 'way down the hill,
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away…

Heave away, bullies, ye parish-rigged bums,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Take yer hands from yer pockets and don't suck yer thumbs.
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away…

Roust away, bullies, the wind’s drawing free,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Let’s get the glad rags on and drive her to sea.
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away…

We're outward bound for Vallipo Bay,
Way, ay, roll an' go!
Get crackin', m' lads, 'tis a hell o' a way!
Timme rollickin' randy dandy O!

Heave a pawl, oh, heave away…
