Folk and Traditional Song Lyrics:
cho: Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises (patent blocks o' diff'rent sizes)
Way hay and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning
What shall we do with a drunken sailor (3x)
Earl-eye in the morning!
Put him in a long-boat till he's sober
Keep him there and make 'im bale 'er.
Trice him up in a runnin' bowline.
Tie him to the tasffrail when she's yard-arm under.
Put him in the scuppers with a hose-pipe on him.
Take 'im and shake 'im and try an' wake 'im.
Give 'im a dose of salt and water.
Give 'im a taste of the bosun's rope-end.
Stick on 'is back a mustard plaster.
Soak 'im in oil till he sprouts a flipper.
Shave his belly with a rusty razor.
Put him in the guard room till he gets sober.
