Chicken on a Raft

The skipper’s in the wardroom drinkin’ gin,
Hi, ho, chicken on a raft!
I don’t mind a-knockin’, but I ain’t a-goin’ in!
Hi, ho, chicken on a raft!
The jimmy’s laughin’ like a drain,
Hi, ho, chicken on a raft!
He’s lookin’ in me comic cuts again!
Hi, ho, chicken on a raft!

Hey! Chicken on a raft on a Monday morning,
Oh, what a terrible sight to see.
Dabtoes forward and the dustmen aft,
Sittin’ there a-pickin’ at a chicken on a raft!
Hi, ho, chicken on a raft!
Hey, ho, chicken on a raft!
Hi, ho, chicken on a raft!
Hey, ho, chicken on a raft!

Well, they gave me the middle and the forenoon too,
But now I’m pulling in a whalin’ crew.
A seagull wheelin’ overhead,
Now I oughta be sleepin’ in a featherbed!

Well, I had a little girl in Donny-B,
And did she make a fool of me.
Her heart was like a pusser’s shower,
From hot to cold in a quarter of an hour!

So we kissed goodbye on the midnight bus,
But she didn’t cry and she didn’t fuss.
So am I the man what she loves best,
Or am I just a cuckoo in another man’s nest?

Well, an Amazon girl lived in Dumfries,
She only had her kids in twos and threes
And her sister lives in Maryhill,
She says she won’t but I think she will!
