Do you know this song? My dad used to sing it all the time. Its still catchy even after 200 years. I'm gonna sing it with my high school class. They like to sing. The song has the words "blow" and "man" in it so its funny in a Beavis and Butthead way .

My dad's US Navy ship was given to the Koreans and now its the ship set up for display in Ga-nea-gung/Dong Hae next to the NK spy sub.



Come all ye young fellows that follow the sea,
-to my way haye, blow the man down,
And pray pay attention and listen to me,
-Give me some time to blow the man down.


I'm a deep water sailor just in from Hong Kong,
-to my way haye, 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 my way haye, blow the man down,
And on that 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 my way haye, blow the man down,
You'd split your sides laughing at the sights that you see.
-Give me some time to blow the man down.


With the tinkers and tailors and soljers and all
-to my way haye, blow the man down,
That ship for prime seaman on board a Black Ball.
-Give me some time to blow the man down.


'Tis when a Black Baller is clear of the land,
-to my way haye, blow the man down,
Our Boatswain then gives us the word of command
-Give me some time to blow the man down.


"Lay aft," is the cry,"to the break of the Poop!
-to my way haye, blow the man down,
Or I'll help you along with the toe of my boot!"
-Give me some time to blow the man down.


'Tis larboard and starboard on the deck you will sprawl,
-to my way haye, blow the man down,
For "Kicking Jack" Williams commands the Black Ball.
-Give me some time to blow the man down.


Pay attention to order, now you one and all,
-to my way haye, blow the man down,
For right there above you flies the Black Ball.
-Give me some time to blow the man down.
