It’s a ship song. But sadly, the ship does not sink. The song does however contain mysterious lyrics that sound like, “on the Gulliby Isles where the pooh-poo smiles and the anagazanders roar.” Spend some time figuring that one out. Mixed Vocals, Folk, Pirate Songs

A Capital Ship 1920's Dance Hall Song Charles Edward Carryl, edited by Bounding Main
A capital ship for an ocean trip was the "Walloping Window Blind." No wind that blew dismayed her crew or troubled the Captain’s mind. The man at the wheel was made to feel contempt for the wildest blo-o-ow, Tho' it often appeared when the weather had cleared, That he'd been in his bunk below.
Chorus: So blow ye winds, heigh-ho A-roving I will go, I’ll stay no more on England’s shore, so let the music play-ay-ay, I’m off on the morning train, I’ll cross the bounding main. I’m off to my love with a boxing glove, ten thousand miles away.
The Bosun’s mate was very sedate, yet fond of amusement too. He played hop-scotch with the starboard watch, while the Captain tickled the crew. The gunner we had was apparently mad, for he sat on the after ra-a-ail, and he fired salutes with the Captain’s boots in the teeth of the booming gale. (Chorus.)
The Captain sat on the Commodore’s hat and dined in a royal way, off roasted pigs and pickles and figs, and gummery bread each day. The Cook he was Dutch and behaved as such for the diet he gave the crew - oo - oo, was a couple of tons of hot-cross buns served up with sugar and glue. (Chorus.)
And we all felt ill as mariners will On a diet that's cheap and rude; And we shivered and shook as we dipped the cook In a tub of his gluesome food. Then nautical pride we laid aside, And we cast the vessel ashore [or-or] On the Gulliby Isles, where the Poohpooh smiles, And the Anagazanders roar. (Chorus.)
