I served me time in the Black Ball Line
Tell me why hey hey hurr-i-o
In the Black Ball Line I served me time
Hurrah for the Black Ball Line

The Black Ball Line is good and true Tell me why hey hey hurr-i-o
The Black Ball Line's for me and you Hurrah for the Black Ball
Line

Take a trip to Liverpool. Tell me why hey hey hurr-i-o
Liverpool that Yankee school Hurrah for the Black Ball Line
Yankee sailors y'all see there Tell me why hey hey hurr-i-o
Red topped boots and short backed hair Hurrah for the Black Ball
Line

Eighteen knots with the wind abaft Tell me why hey hey hurr-i-o
Stand by your halyards fore and aft Hurrah for the Black Ball
