Song Lyrics

In South Australia I was born
Heave away, haul away
South Australia 'round Cape Horne
Bound for South Australia

Chorus
Haul away you rolling kings!
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, Oh hear me sing
Bound for South Australia

There's just one thing that grieves my mind
Heave away, haul away
That's to leave me box of toys behind
Bound for South Australia

Chorus

The wind was cold, the rain was wet
Heave away, haul away
That wavy trip I won't forget
Bound for South Australia

Chorus

I jumped right up, I jumped right down
Heave away, haul away
I jumped all around that crazy town
Bound for South Australia

Chorus

Trivia

  • Anthony provides the voice of the pirate who sounds a lot like Captain Feathersword.
