Cape Cod Girls

Cape Cod Girls published on

Cape Cod girls ain’t got no combs
Heave away, haul away
They comb their hair with the codfish bones
And we’re bound away for Australia

And it’s heave her up, me bully bully boys, heave away, haul away,
Oh heave her up and don’t you make a noise, and we’re bound away for Australia

Them Cape Cod ships ain’t got no sails
They all blown off the nor’east gales

Cape Cod boys ain’t got no sleds
They slide down hills on codfish heads

Cape Cod girls ain’t got no frills
They tie their hair with codfish gills

Cape Cod women don’t bake no pies
They feed their babies on codfish eyes

Cape Cod cats ain’t got no tails
They all blew off in the nor’east gales

Cape Cod shoes ain’t got no souls
They all burnt up from walking on coals

Those Cape Cod girls don’t wear no clothes
We’re Cape Cod bound just as straight as she goes
