Wellerman-Nice Version Introduction

}
Wellerman is a folk song in ballad style first published in New Zealand in the 1970s. In early 2021, a cover by Scottish singer Nathan Evans became a viral hit on the social media site TikTok, leading to a "social media craze" around sea shanties and maritime songs.

The Lyrics of Wellerman:

There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy of Tea
The winds blew up her bow dipped down
O blow my bully boys blow huh
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
She had not been two weeks from shore
When down on her a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore
He'd take that whale in tow huh
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
Before the boat had hit the water
The whale's tail came up and caught her
All hands to the side harpooned and fought her
When she dived down low huh
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
No line was cut no whale was freed
The captain's mind was not of greed
And he belonged to the Whaleman's creed
She took that ship in tow huh
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
For forty days or even more
The line went slack then tight once more
All boats were lost there were only four
But still that whale did go
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
As far as I've heard the fight's still on
The line's not cut and the whale's not gone
The Wellerman makes his regular call
To encourage the captain crew and all
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
