I’ve Been to Harlem


Lyrics

I’ve been to Harlem, I’ve been to Dover,
I’ve traveled this wide world all over.
Over, over, three times over,
Drink all you have to drink and turn the glasses over.
Sailing east, sailing west,
Sailing o’er the ocean.
Better watch out when the boat begins to rock,
Or you’ll lose your girl in the ocean.

  1. When I was in elementary school, instead of “drink all you have to drink, turn the glasses over” we were taught: “find me another ship, when this trip is over”. So, were these lyrics sanitized for out protection or what?? I still kinda like them.

    1. There are multiple versions of many of these songs since they were often passed down from generation to generation, and people would add their own lyrics in different situations. Thanks for sharing your version!
