Lyrics in English 

In South Australia I was born,

heave away, haul away

In South Australia, 'round Cape Horn,

we're bound for South Australia

 

Chorus

Haul away you rolling king ,

heave away, haul away

Haul away, you'll hear me sing,

We're bound for South Australia

 

As I walked out one morning fair,

 heave away, haul away

'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair,

we're bound for South Australia

 

There's just one thing that's on my mind,

 heave away, haul away

That's leaving Nancy Blair behind,

we're bound for South Australia

 

And as we wallop  round Cape Horn,

heave away, haul away

You'll wish to God you've never been born,

we're bound for South Australia
