Drunken Sailor


What do we do with a drunken sailor (3X) Early in the morning? Way-hey and up she rises (3X) Early in the morning. (CHORUS) Put him in a longboat until he’s sober. (3X) Early in the morning. (repeat Chorus) Pull out the plug and wet him all over, etc. Put him in the scuppers with a hose pipe on him, etc. Heave him by the leg with a running bowline, etc. Take him and shake him and try to wake him, etc. Give him a taste of the bosom’s rope end, etc Give him a dose of salt and water, etc. That’s what we do with a drunken sailor, etc.
