John Kanaka

About

I heard, I heard, the old man say,
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!
Today, today is a holiday,
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!

Chorus:
Tu-lai-ay, Oh! Tu-lai-ay!
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!

We'll work tomorrow, but no work today,
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!
We'll work tomorrow, but no work today.
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!

Chorus

We're bound away for 'Frisco Bay,
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!
We're bound away at the break of day.
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!

Chorus

We're bound away around Cape Horn,
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!
We wish to Christ we'd never been born!
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!

Chorus

Oh haul, oh haul, oh haul away,
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!
Oh haul away, an' make yer pay!
John Kanaka-naka tu-lai-ay!

Chorus
