The Drunken Sailor

The Drunken Sailor

Traditional - Lyrics from Songs of American Sailormen, by Joanna Colcord


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?

Hoo-ray and up she rises,
Hoo-ray and up she rises,
Hoo-ray and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Put him in the long-boat and make him bail her.

What shall we do with the drunken soldier

Put him in the guardroom till he gets sober.
