Describes the delights of a pleasure trip. A British song heavily influenced by American popular music.
Just see that steamer over there
Her smoke goes puffing in the air
Come along come along hear the crowd
Shouting loud! Noisy as a thunder cloud
Just see young fellows and their gals,
Just watch old cronies and their pals;
Hey! Ho! Get ready to go
What's that hustling bustling there?
Don't you know? Don't you know? Don't you know?
Hey! Ho! That whistle's blowing - say ain't you going
(to where you came from)
Don't stay! - Hurry up along the gangway
They're shouting "All aboard for the Princess Maud
(Where's your gal? Where's your gal? Ain't you got one?)
Hey! Ho! Can't you hear the steamer?
Hey! Ho! She'll soon be sialing upon the foam
Hurry up, hurry up, get up on the deck,
Find the nearest gal and put your arms around her neck,
The last boat's leaving for home!
On deck there's going to be a dance
Those fiddlers only want the chance
Get aboard gt aboard don't be late
Hear old Sam on the banjo syncopate!
Oh! What a jolly holiday!
The boat will soon be under weigh
Hey! Ho! - that whistle has gone -
Look they're hurrying, scurrying there!
Scramble on! Scramble on! Scramble on!
