Drunken Sailor


(Chorus)
Way hay, up she rises
Way hay, up she rises
Way hay, up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning.

What shall we do with a drunken sailor?
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Put him in a long-boat till he's sober.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Keep him there and make 'im bale 'er.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Trice him up in a runnin' bowline.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Tie him to the tasffrail when she's yard-arm under.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Put him in the scuppers with a hose-pipe on him.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Take 'im and shake 'im and try an' wake 'im.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Give 'im a dose of salt and water.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Give 'im a taste of the bosun's rope-end.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Stick on 'is back a mustard plaster.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Soak 'im in oil till he sprouts a flipper.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Shave his belly with a rusty razor.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!

Put him in the guard room till he gets sober.
(3 times)
Earl-eye in the morning!
