Lukey's Boat

Written by Virture Kean



Lukey's boat is painted green, aha my boys,
Lukey's boat is painted green,
The prettiest little boat you ever seen.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Lukey's boat got a fine fore cutty, aha my boys,
Lukey's boat got a fine fore cutty,
And every seam is chinked with putty.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Lukey's boat got high stop sails, aha my boys,
Lukey's boat got high stop sails,
And she was planched with copper nails.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Oh, Lukey's boat got a high stopped jib, aha my boys,
Oh, Lukey's boat got a high stopped jib
And a patent block to her foremast head,
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

I think, says Lukey, I'll make her bigger, aha my boys,
I think, says Lukey, I'll make her bigger,
I'll load her down with a one claw jigger.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Lukey's rolling out his grub, aha my boys,
Lukey's rolling out his grub,
One split pea in a ten pound tub.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Oh, Lukey he sailed down the shore, aha my boys,
Oh, Lukey he sailed down the shore to
catch some fish from Labrador,
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Aha, says Lukey, the blinds are down, aha my boys,
Aha, says Lukey, the blinds are down,
My wife is dead and underground.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.

Aha, says Lukey, I don't care. aha my boys,
Aha, says Lukey, I don't care,
I'll get me another in the spring of the year.
Aha me boys a riddle I day.
