Medley of Rowing Shanties - "Pull Away", "Fine Time O Day"
& "Hell of a Wedding"

Hur-rah, me bully boys,
Fine time o' day!
We pull for Saint Thomas, boys,
Fine time o' day!

San Thamas hab de pretty girls,
Fine time o' day!
Nancy Gibbs an' Betsy Braid,
Fine time o' day!

Hur-rah, me bully boys,
Fine time o' day!
We pull for Saint Thomas, boys,
Fine time o' day!

Massa cum fro' London town,
Fine time o' day!
Massa he's a handsome man,
Fine time o' day!

Massa chase de pretty girls,
Fine time o' day!
Massa chase de pretty girls,
Fine time o' day!

He catch 'em in de cane break,
Fine time o' day!
Catch 'em an' he squeeze 'em,
Fine time o' day!

Hur-rah, me bully boys,
Fine time o' day!
We pull for Saint Thomas, boys,
Fine time o' day!
