Take On Me

	We're talking away, don't know what to say
	Come breast the bars, bullies, an' heave her away,

	I'll say it anyway, today's another day 
	Get crackin', m' lads, 'tis a hell o' a way!

	I'll be coming for your love, though ye shying away 
	We're outward bound for Vallipo Bay!



	Take me on, take on me, 
	Let's get glad-rags on an' drive 'er to sea.

	Take on me, take me on, 
	Now we are ready to head for the Horn

	I'll be gone In a day or two
	For we are the boy-os who can kick 'er through.



	So needless to say I'm odds and ends
	An' hope very shortly to see you again

	But that's me stumbling away
	Slowly learning that life is OK

	Heave away, bullies, and say after me
	Tis no better to be safe than sorry




	Take me on, take on me, 
	Roust 'er up, bullies, the wind's drawin' free

	Take on me, take me on,
	Our boots an' our clothes are all in the pawn

	I'll be gone In a day or two
	Sing goodbye to Sally an' goodbye to Sue



	Oh the things that you say Is it life or just a play 
	Come breast the bars, bullies, heave worries away 

	You're all the things  I've got to remember
	Now heave on the line and pull up the anchor


	The cooper's at the vise-bench, a-making iron poles,
	And the mate's upon the main hatch a-cursing all our souls.

	Soon we'll be rollin' her 'way down though the Bay,
	But I'll be coming for ye anyway



	Take me on, take on me, 
	Let's get glad-rags on an' drive 'er to sea.

	Take on me, take me on, 
	Now we are ready to head for the Horn

	I'll be gone In a day or two
	For we are the boy-os who can kick 'er through.
