Lyrics:

Chorus: ||: Help me Bob, there’s a bully in the alley,
Way-hey, bully in the alley!
Help me Bob, there’s a bully in the alley,
Bully down in Shinbone Al! :||

Sally got down and dirty last night,
Way-hey, bully in the alley!
Sally got down and she spliced,
Bully down in Shinbone Al!

The sailors left last night,
Way-hey, bully in the alley!
The sailors got a ball of wax,
Bully down in Shinbone Al!

Sally got down and dirty,
Way-hey, bully in the alley!
Sally is the girl that got spliced,
Bully down in Shinbone Al!

Halyard shanty, probably West Indian traditional.
