Eliza Lee egy úgynevezett capstain shanty. A horgonyhúzásnál a matrózok monoton munkáját hivatott könnyíteni. A horgonytengelybe illesztett rudakat markolták meg, és jártak körbe-körbe, amíg a horgony a helyére nem jött...



The smartest clipper you can find is
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
She's the Margaret Evans of the Blue Star Line
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]
To me hey rig-a-jig in a jaunting gun
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
With Liza Lee all on my knee
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

O, we're outward bound for the West Street Pier
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
With Galway shale and Liverpool beer
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]

Ah, and when we're out in New York Town
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
We'll dance them Bowery girls around!
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]

Oh! the Margaret Evans of the Blue Star Line
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
She's never a day behind her time!
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]

O, and when we're back in Liverpool town
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
We'll stand ya's whiskeys all around!
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]

Ah, when I was a young man, in my prime
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
I'd knock them Scouse girls two at a time
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]

Oh, one more pull and that will do!
Ho-way, ho, are you 'most done?
For we're the boys to kick her through!
Clear away the track an' let the bullgine run!

[Chorus]
