Drunken Sailor

What shall we do with the drunken sailor
What shall we do with the drunken sailor
What shall we do with the drunken sailor early in the morning

Put him the longboat till he’s sober
Put him the longboat till he’s sober
Put him the longboat till he’s sober early in the morning

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises early in the morning

When my grandpa was a boy he went down to the general store
Saw a story book on whales shooting its spout and splashing its tail
Then he got a sailors dream about cruising round on the salty seas
Joined up with a fishing crew went off to shoot a whale or two

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises early in the morning

Lots of whales in the deep blue sea
we can them for the industry
Drag em alongside cut em in two
Melt them down and sell them to you

There hardly is a sailor alive who can keep the tears from his eyes
As he remembers the good old days when there were no whales to save

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises early in the morning

A modern ship with a modern crew sonar scopes and a Stokes Harpoon
After six months you begin to see whalings not what it used to be
Now we can the companies for scouring out the deep blue seas
Looking for ivory and perfume and oil to light your living room

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises early in the morning

Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor early in the morning

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises early in the morning

Put him in the cabin with the Captains daughter
Put him in the cabin with the Captains daughter
Put him in the cabin with the Captains daughter early in the morning

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises early in the morning
