KID HAULING SHANTY
(Dorothy Attneave c 1998)

It's three in the morning and the songs are all sung
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
There's singers getting ready to carry their young
To their own warm beds.

In the corner on a blanket, under coats on a chair
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
Someone's got to carry those little ones there
To their own warm beds.

I hauled 'em last time, turn and turn about
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
So tonight, love, it's your turn to carry 'em out
To their own warm beds.

They had songs in their ears as they drifted away
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
They'll be singing in their dreams till the break of day
In their own warm beds.

I can't believe we sang till a quarter to three
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
Sure wish somebody'd come and carry me
To my own warm bed.

My back's out honey, don't know what I did --
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
This time you're gonna have to carry both of our kids
To their own warm beds.

I hope some day when by babies are grown
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em,
They'll sing all night and haul babes of their own
To their own warm beds.

It's three in the morning and the songs are all sung
Hoist 'em up -- don't wake 'em
There's singers getting ready to carry their young
To their own warm beds.

Hi, Ian - I think the tune to 'Kid Hauling Shanty" is "Leave Her Johnny, Leave Her." Am I correct?

Haven't figured out the tune to Steve's song yet....
