The Longest Johns

"The Milkmaid"

[Verse 1]
I love a woman and she loves me
Heave away!
She belongs to the rolling sea
Heave and haul away!
Though she's made me many a pound
Heave away!
I had no choice but to cut her down
Heave and haul away!

[Chorus]
Cast her away brave boys, we'll find another when we've been paid
But there'll never be another craft like the crafty old Milkmaid

[Verse 2]
She was crammed with liquid gold
Heave away!
Never was a finer cargo stowed
Heave and haul away!
Kegs and bottles all locked up tight
Heave away!
And another one to get us through the night
Heave and haul away!

[Chorus]
Cast her away brave boys, we'll find another when we've been paid
But there'll never be another craft like the crafty old Milkmaid

[Verse 3]
We filled our pockets and we never got caught
Heave away!
And emptied them again in the nearest port
Heave and haul away!
Find us a buyer and we'll find a way through
Heave away!
Leave it to the maid in her fearless crew
Heave and haul away!

[Chorus]
Cast her away brave boys, we'll find another when we've been paid
But there'll never be another craft like the crafty old Milkmaid

[Verse 4]
Through the glass of the customs come
Heave away!
We'll never let the king's men steal our rum
Heave and haul away!
Scuttle the hulk, kiss the maid goodbye
Heave away!
I never thought I'd see the bosun cry
Heave and haul away!

[Chorus]
Cast her away brave boys, we'll find another when we've been paid
But there'll never be another craft like the crafty old Milkmaid

[Verse 5]
Now I'm hiding in a tavern among the kegs
Heave away!
Drinking all day, trying to wet our legs
Heave and haul away!
Though our next ship may be strong and true
Heave away!
We'll always be the Milkmaid's crew!
Heave and haul away!

[Chorus]
Cast her away brave boys, we'll find another when we've been paid
But there'll never be another craft like the crafty old Milkmaid (OI!)
