Gosport Nancy
Bellowhead Lyrics


Nancy Johnson, she's my darling
She's my every waking thought
How she greets me when she meets me
When my ship gets in to port

All the Gosport ladies, they do the best they can.
But if you're making a bed for a sailor's head
there's none like my girl Nan.

Gosport girls can drink for England
Gosport girls, they goes their tot!
Rum and brandy, gin and shandy
Gosport girls'll drink the lot!

All the Gosport ladies
they swig the flowing can
But for knocking it back with Honest Jack
there's none like my girl Nan.

Oh Nancy can't you see
You're the only girl for me!
How I dream of lovely Nancy
when I'm sailing on the sea.

Gosport girls, they're good at dancing
They're the best, there is no doubt.
When the music sets them prancing
How they'll fling their skirts about!

All the Gosport ladies
they do the French Can-Can
But for real high kicks and fancy tricks
there's none like my girl Nan.

Oh, Nancy, can't you see?
You're the only girl for me!
How I dream of lovely Nancy
when I'm sailing on the sea.

Nancy Johnson keeps a bar-room
where the boys can take their ease
She will wake me and she'll shake me
she will do whatever she please.

All the Gosport ladies
they do the best they can
But for making a bed for a sailor's head
there's none like my girl Nan

Oh, Nancy, can't you see?
You're the only girl for me!
How I dream of lovely Nancy
when I'm sailing on the sea.

Oh, Nancy, can't you see?
You're the only girl for me!
How I dream of lovely Nancy
when I'm sailing on the sea.

Oh dear! Look at Bellowhead crammed into that tiny space having to stand still instead of jumping about like they usually do! goes back to weeping about the band breaking up

Still mourning Bellowhead

This is great..I play it loud ...

This is like watching Da Vinci trying to paint with his arms tied behind his back - to see Bellowhead fill a stage with the sheer joy of playing music watch the Youtube tape of Sloe Gin Set. Better still see them live before they're gone, you'll remember the experience forever.

Robert Cotterill

Brilliant. Full of life and fun.

Martin Hedington

The band announced a one-off virtual reunion concert to be streamed on the 5th December 2020, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hedonism. (FYI; Gosport Guy)

Phil Moye
