JOHN KANAKA

Paroles :

I thought I heard the old man say
John Kanaka-naka tu la-ïé
Oh today today is a holiday
John Kanaka-naka tu la-ïé

Tu la-ïé o tu la-ïé
John Kanaka-naka tu la-ïé

We'll work tomorrow but no work today
We'll work tomorrow but no work today

And we're outward bound for " Frisco Bay "
And we're outward bound for at the break of day

Oh we're a Yankee ship with a Yankee crew
Where the buckos sweep to kick her through

Oh we're a Yankee ship with a Yankee mate
If you stop to walk he'll change your gait

We'll haul we'll haul we'll haul away
And make her port and take our pay
