A noble whale ship and commander
called the Catalpa, they say
she sailed out to Western Australia
and took six poor Fenians away

Come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

You kept them in Western Australia
till their hair had begun to turn grey
when a Yank from the States of America
came out here and stole them away

come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

For seven long years they had served here
and seven long more had to stay
for defending their country old Ireland
for that they were banished away

come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

now all the Perth boats were a-racing
and making short tacks for the spot
but the Yankee she tacked into Fremantle
and took the best prize of the lot

remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

the Georgette armed with bold warriors
went out the poor Yanks to arrest
but she hoisted her star-spangled banner
saying you will not board me I guess

come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

Now they've landed safe in America
and there will be able to cry
Hoist up the Green flag and shamrock
Hurrah for old Ireland we'll die

come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

so remember those six Fenians colonial
and sing o'er these few verses with skill
and remember the Yankee that stole them
and the home that they left on the hill

come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away
