Row me bully boys row

The chorus comes from the 2010 film Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe as Robin and his good friend Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea in the role of Alan A’ Dayle.  Various people have added verses, including The Brigands.  We sing verses composed by our own Ship’s Lookout, Alfredo Heights.

Row me bully boys

We're in a hurry boys

We've got a long way to go

We'll sing and we'll dance

And bid farewell to France

Row me bully boys row
