little john cameron Help: What is bulgine pie? (19) RE: Sea term: bulgine pie 09 Jun 02

This traditional sea shanty originated in America and was influenced by the Afro American sailors. It would have been sung aboard American packet ships while working the capstan or pumps.

'A bulgine' is sailor's slang for the railway engine used along or on the docks.

'Pumpkin pudden' is a dessert originated from New England.
