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,
Take him and shake him and try to wake him,
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.
