Hark Now

© 2004 Gordon Bok

 

A rowing song

 

The January Men and Then Some

 

You can bail her all night, you can haul her all day

HARK NOW, HEED ME NOW

And damned if she'll give you a decent week's pay

OH HEED AND HARKEN TO ME

 

If Ronnie was here on the end of an oar

I'd show the old bat what a muckle* was for

 

I've run round old England, I've put into France

Wherever I've landed I got a fair chance

 

A China-man come to my old woman's door

He gave her a hake and it danced on the floor

 

O who will pull with ye when I am gone?

If ye pull like ye talk we could lift-her-along

 

And who will sing with ye when I am gone?

If ye sing like ye pull we'll be here all night long!

 

 

 

*fish club

†get the job done quickly

 

 

Hark Now is recorded on the album In Concert
