THE SKYLARK
 
div
 
On board my yacht 'The Skylark'
All young lovers like embarking
Because the crew look at the sky
Whilst lovers do the larking.

Chorus: Any more for 'The Skylark'
A shilling round the bay
Any more for 'The Skylark'
If you don't come back don't pay.


We call a ship a she because
She do a bhoy with anchor
And when we want to make her go
We raise the sheet and spank her.

Chorus: Any more for 'The Skylark'
Lovely scenery
Any more for the Skylark
The ladies bathe at three.


They say that up fames ladder soon
Young girls will climb like adders
If up fame's ladder girls climb
Where will men be - holding ladders

Chorus: Any more for 'The Skylark'
A waste for a fat girl eh
Any more for 'The Skylark'
Three miles round the bay.


A little girl came up to me
And said, 'Please look down there, sir
I've buried baby in the sand
And I can't remember where, sir.'

Chorus: Any more for 'The Skylark'
A shilling round the bay
Any more for 'The Skylark'
Sixpence each half way.


Now the carpenter aboard my yacht
He married Mary Limber
And as she's got a wooden leg
He's never short of timber.

Chorus: Any more for 'The Skylark'
We lost our rudder peg
Any more for 'The Skylark'
So we used her wooden leg.


A girl once bought a bathing dress
It cost six and eleven
And as she was bending down to dive
Bang went half past seven.

Chorus: Any more for 'The Skylark'
May I be a fishing smack
Any more for 'The Skylark'
Well what was last year's crack?
