1. Come all ye young fellows who follow the sea,
(to me! Wey hey, blow the man down)
And pray pay attention and listen to me
(Give me some time to blow the man down)

(to me! Wey hey, blow the man down)
If you buy me a drink, then I'll sing you a song
(Give me some time to blow the man down)

Chorus:
Blow the man down, bullies, blow the man down
Wey hey, blow the man down
Blow him right back into Liverpool town
Give me some time to blow the man down

3. There's tinkers and tailors and soldiers and all
(To me! Wey hey, blow the man down)
They all ship for sailors on board the Black Ball
(Give me some time to blow the man down)

(Wey hey, blow the man down)
Assisted along by the toe of a boot
(Give me some time to blow the man down)

(To me! Wey hey, blow the man down)
For kickin' Jack Williams commands the Black Ball

(To me! Wey hey, blow the man down)
I'll none of yer dodges on my ship today
(Give me some time to blow the man down)
