New York Girls Song Lyrics

Finbar Furey
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
New York Girls VERSE ONE:

Shipmates listen unto me, I'll tell you in my song
Of the things that happened to me
When I come home from Hong Kong


To me a-weigh, you Santy, My dear Annie
Oh, you New York gals, Can't you dance the polka?


As I walked down on Chatham Street a fair maid I did meet
She asked me please to see her home, she lived on Bleeker Street
Now if you'll only come with me you can have a treat
You can have a glass of brandy and something nice to eat


Before we sat down to eat we had several drinks
The liquor was so awful strong I quickly fell asleep


When I awoke next morning I had an aching head
My gold watch and my pocket-book and my lady friend had fled
In looking round this little room nothing did I see
But a woman's shoes and apron which now belonged to me


Now dressed in the lady's apron I wandered most forlorn
Till Martin Churchill took me in and he sent me round Cape Horn

CHORUS: (Twice)

To me a-weigh, you Santy, My dear Annie
Oh, you New York gals, Can't you dance the polka?
