Sheffield Shanty Lyrics

Avast! They're leaving town two by two,
As the rain pours down and we're all soaked through
And as they march away, two by two,
It's like we need an ark for the rest of us

So I'll cut my hair short and I'll make a flag from an
old black dress that I'd have worn if it hadn't rained so
much that the seven hills became seven seas
And I'll sail my house from Broomhill to Walkley

Pretty Polly is a pigeon, she's got a gammy leg and
she'll eat anything
I've got an eye patch with a hole in cos I don't need to
navigate by stars - I use the road signs and the Arts
Tower
Still the rains come

So I'll cut my hair short and I'll make a flag from an
old black dress that I'd have worn if it hadn't rained so
much that the seven hills became seven seas
And I'll sail my house from Crookes to Don Valley

You can be my cabin boy and I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Eddie, and Eddie when you call me you can
call me Captain

So I'll cut my hair short and I'll make a flag from an
old black dress that I'd have worn if it hadn't rained so
much that the seven hills became seven seas
And I'll sail my house from Fulwood to High Green
