South Australia

In South Australia where I was born,
Heave away, Haul away!
South Australia, round Cape Horn,
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!

As I walked out one morning fair,
Heave away, haul away!
it’s there I met Miss Nancy Blair,
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!

I shook her up, I shook her down
Heave away, Haul away!
I shook her round and round and round,
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!

And as you wal-lop round Cape Horn,
Heave away, Haul away!
You’ll wish that you had never born,
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!

I wish I was on Australia’s strand,
Heave away, Haul away!
with a bottle of whiskey in my hand
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!

In South Australia my native land,
Heave away, Haul away!
Rich in lizards, flies and sand
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!

Yes, South Australia is a bloody fine place,
Heave away, Haul away!
To get blind drunk is no disgrace,
and we’re bound for South Australia!
Haul away, you rollin’King!
Heave away, Haul away!
All the way you’ll hear me sing:
We’re bound for South Australia!
