Drunken Sailor

Lyrics

(Sea shanty)

1. 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.

2. Put him in a long boat ’til he’s sober…

3. Keep him there and make him bail her…

4. Hoist him aloft with a runnin’ bowling’…

*Often pronounced er-lie”
