Oh, I come from the world below.
That is where the cocks do crow.
Ch: Whisk-ey oh, John-ny oh!

Oh, rise me up from down below,
Down, below, oh-oh-oh-oh!
Up a-loft this yard must go, John!
Rise me up from down be-low!

I come from the world below!
This is where the fires do roar.

From Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman by William Main Doerflinger (1951, '72, '91)
