Farewell to old England forever
Farewell to my rum culls as well
Farewell to the well known Old Bailee
Where I used for to cut such a swell

Singing tooral liooral liaddity
Singing tooral liooral liay
Singing tooral liooral liaddity
And we’re bound for Botany Bay

There’s the captain as is our Commander
There’s the bo’sun and all the ship’s crew
There’s the first and second class passengers
Knows what we poor convicts go through

Singing tooral liooral liaddity
Singing tooral liooral liay
Singing tooral liooral liaddity
And we’re bound for Botany Bay

‘taint leavin’ old England we cares about
‘taint cos we mispels what we knows
But becos all we lightfingered gentry
Hops around with a log on our toes

Singing tooral liooral liaddity
Singing tooral liooral liay
Singing tooral liooral liaddity
And we’re bound for Botany Bay

For seven long years I’ll be staying here
For seven long years and a day
For meeting a cove in an area
And taking his ticker away

Singing tooral liooral liaddity
Singing tooral liooral liay
Singing tooral liooral liaddity
And we’re bound for Botany Bay

Oh, had I the wings of a turtledove
I’d soar on my pinions so high
Slap bang to tha arms of my Polly Love
And in her sweet presence I’d die

Singing tooral liooral liaddity
Singing tooral liooral liay
Singing tooral liooral liaddity
And we’re bound for Botany Bay

Now, all my young Dookies and Duchesses
Take warning from what I’ve to say
Mind all is your own as you touchesses
Or you’ll find us in Botany Bay

Singing tooral liooral liaddity
Singing tooral liooral liay
Singing tooral liooral liaddity
And we’re bound for Botany Bay
