Georgy, me neck-a-broke,
Hold 'im, George,
Think he break me neck!

Georgy, me neck-a-broke,
Hold 'im, George,
Think he break me neck!

Pull on the oar now,
Think he break me neck!

Cut through the water,
Think he break me neck!

Blackfish rising,
Think he break me neck!

Pull on the oar now,
Think he break me neck!

Georgy, me neck-a-broke,
Hold 'im, George,
Think he break me neck!
Georgy, me neck-a-broke,
Hold 'im, George,
Think he break me neck!

Put in the stick now,
Think he break me neck!

Put it on the loggerhead,
Think he break me neck!

Pull on the oar now,
Think he break me neck!

George, don'cha lose him,
Think he break me neck!

Donna let 'im take you,
Think he break me neck!

Georgy, me neck-a-broke,
Hold 'im, George,
Think he break me neck!

Georgy, me neck-a-broke,
Hold 'im, George,
Think he break me neck!
