Cape Cod Girls

Cape Cod Girls

Traditional - As sung by Captain Jesse Schaffer


Cape Cod girls ain't got no combs,
Heave away, haul away!
They comb their hair with a codfish bone,
And we're bound away for Australia!

So heave her up, me bully bully boys,
Heave away, haul away!
Heave her up, why don't you make some noise?
And we're bound away for Australia!


Cape Cod boys ain't got no sleds,
They ride down hills on a codfish head.

Cape Cod mothers don't bake no pies,
They feed their children codfish eyes.

Cape Cod doctors ain't got no pills,
They give their patients codfish gills.

Cape Cod cats ain't got no tails,
They got blown off in northeast gales.

Cape Cod dogs ain't got no bite,
They lost it barking at the Cape Cod light.

Cape Cod girls they are so fine,
They know how to bait a codfish line.
