Oh, blow the man down, bullies, blow the man down, 

to me way aye blow the man down

Oh, blow the man down, in the Liverpool town.

Give me some time to blow the man down!


I'm a deep water sailor, just in from Hong Kong,

To me way hey, blow the man down,

if you'll give me some grog, I'll sing you a song,

Give me some time to blow the man down.


'Twas on a Black Baller, I first served my time,

To me way hey, blow the man down,

And on the Black Baller I wasted my prime,

Give me some time to blow the man down.


'Tis when a Black Baller's preparing for sea,

To me way hey, blow the man down,

You'd split your sides laughing at sites that you see.

Give me some time to blow the man down.


With tinkers and tailors and soldiers and all

To me way hey, blow the man down,

That ship for prime seaman on board a Black Ball.

Give me some time to blow the man down.
