Drunken Sailor

words and music Harry Wincott, additional verses by Brad Howard

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

chorus:
Weigh heigh and up she rises
Weigh heigh and up she rises
Weigh heigh and up she rises
Early in the morning

Put him in a long boat till he’s sober.

Leave him there till they make him better.

Trice up in a running bowline.

Give ‘im a dose of salt and water.

Give ‘im a taste of the bosun’s rope-end.

Soak him in oil till he sprouts a flipper.

Shave his belly with a rusty razor.

Put him in the bed of the Captain’s daughter.

You should of seen the Captain’s daughter.

She looks like an orangutan.

Swinging from a chandalier.

That’s what you do with a drunken sailor.
