All hands holding tight to the wheel
All hands reaching fore
All hands holding tight to the wheel
Bring her around, filling tight with the wind
Coming down, back on the East India lane

We're there, fifteen girls to a man
We're there, fifteen boys
We're there, fifteen girls to a man
Bring her around, filling tight with the wind
Coming down, back on the East India lane

Cape Horn, devil's blowing a gale
All aboard to pull us down
Cape Horn will wreck and tatter the sails
Bring her around, filling tight with the wind
Coming down, back on the East India lane

Haul, boys, the sultan promises all
More gold than we can store
Haul, boys, let your bilge sheets fall
Bring her around, filling tight with the wind
Coming down, back on the East India lane

Bring her around, filling tight with the wind
Coming down, back on the East India lane
