Oh was you ever on the Congo River
Blow boys blow
Black Fever makes the white man shiver
Blow me bullyboys blow

A Yankee ship came down the river
Blow boys blow
Her masts and yards they shone like silver
Blow me bullyboys blow

So blow me boys and blow forever
Blow boys blow
Why blow me down that Congo River
Blow me bullyboys blow

Now what do you think she had for cargo
Blow boys blow
Why black sheep that had run the embargo
Blow me bullyboys blow

Now what do you think they had for dinner
Blow boys blow
Why a monkeys heart and a donkeys liver
Blow me bullyboys blow

So blow me boys and blow forever
Blow boys blow
Why blow me down that Congo River
Blow me bullyboys blow

Now yonder comes the Arrow packet
Blow boys blow
She fires her guns can't you hear the racket
Blow me bullyboys blow

Now who do you think was the skipper of her
Blow boys blow
Why Bully Hayes the sailor of her
Blow me bullyboys blow

So blow me boys and blow forever
Blow boys blow
Why blow me down that Congo River
Blow me bullyboys blow
