Cape Cod girls they have no combs,
Ch: Heave away! Heavy away!
They comb their hair with codfish bones,
Ch: We're bound for Californiay!

Heavy away, my bully bully boys,
Heavy away, and don't you make a noise.

Cape Code boys they have no sleds,
They slide down dunes on codfish heads.

Cape Cod doctors they have no pills
They give their patients codfish gills.

Cape Cod cats they have no tails,
They lost them all in sou'east gales.
