Marco Polo

Marco Polo
(Hugh Jones)

The Marco Polo's a very fine ship
Fastest on the sea
On Australia's strand we soon will land
Bully Forbes he can look for me
Going to jump the ship in Melbourne town
Going a digging gold
There's a fortune found beneath the ground
Where the eucalyptus grows

Marco Polo, fastest on the sea
Marco Polo, fastest on the sea

Said the Blackball owner, Mr. Baines
To Bully Forbes one day
"It's up to you to keep your crew
While the gold lures them away"
Said Bully Forbes to mr. Baines
"I have a plan so fine
Leave it to me and you'll agree
I'm the king of the Blackball Line"

When we reached Australia's shore
Bully Forbes declared, "There's scurvy
On this trip you won't leave the ship
Until we reach the Mersey"
Now we lie in Salthouse dock
I'll go to sea no more, sir
Done me time on the Blackball Line
And Captain Bully Forbes, sir

recorded by Cliff Haslam
