The Drunken Sailor

Text and Music: Old Sea Chantey/arr. Robert Sund
Published: Walton Music Corp.

What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor
earlye in the morning?

Chorus:
Hooray and up she rises,
hooray and up she rises,
hooray and up she rises,
earlye in the morning!

Put him in the long boat till he’s sober,
put him in the long boat till he’s sober,
put him in the long boat till he’s sober
earlye in the morning.
Chorus

Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
pull out the plug and wet him all over,
pull out the plug and wet him all over,
earlye in the morning.
Chorus

Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him,
put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him,
put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
earlye in the morning.
Chorus

Heave him by the leg in a running bowlin’,
heave him by the leg in a running bowlin’,
heave him by the leg in a running bowlin’
earlye in the morning.
Chorus.
