Drunken Sailor
The Irish Rovers Lyrics


What will we do with a drunken sailor?
What will we do with a drunken sailor?
What will we do with a drunken sailor?
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

Put him in a long boat till his sober
Put him in a long boat till his sober
Put him in a long boat till his sober
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

Stick him in a scupper with a hosepipe bottom
Stick him in a scupper with a hosepipe bottom
Stick him in a scupper with a hosepipe bottom
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

Put him in the bed with the captains daughter
Put him in the bed with the captains daughter
Put him in the bed with the captains daughter
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

That's what we do with a drunken sailor
That's what we do with a drunken sailor
That's what we do with a drunken sailor
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning!

FUNNY! I was just looking for something Irish to play on my guitar, and I had never HEARD this version before! I know the melody, but I was looking for the lyrics, 'What would you do with a drunken sailor, what would you do with a drunken sailor, what would you do with a drunken sailor early in the morning?

One of my favorite bands is U2, and I don't know if they still close their concerts with '40', but many people are surprised that the song gets its title from Psalm 40. 'I waited patiently for the Lord. He inclined and heard my cry! He lifted me up out of the pit, out of the miry clay, I will sing, sing a new song!'

My mom called both of my brothers a few years ago and told them, "Get down to California ASAP if you want to say 'goodbye' to your brother, Charlie, beFORE he dies!!! Your brother had a brain aneurism, and he's currently in the hospital, and the whole medical staff told me there's no chance he's going to survive this. However, a neurosurgeon at Torrance Memorial said, "My mentor in medicine, Dr. Vespa, from UCLA Medical Center can do this NEW procedure that could save his life, but you have to HURRY!"

Another neurosurgeon somehow found OUT about this conversation, tells my wife, "I've been practicing medicine for 20 years, so I know what works, and what DOESN'T work, and that procedure by Dr. Vespa will NEVER work!"

My poor wife responded, "I'm CERTAIN you know more about this than I do, but we don't seem to have much of a choice!"

Well, I DID wake up, but for the rest of my life, I'm going to be quoted for what I said when the medical staff saw me open my eyes and look at that weeping woman, my wife of 17 years, I said, "I'm not sure who she is, but I think I like her a lot."

Of course, I had to be TOLD I said this, because I don't remember ever SAYING it!

To hear my story, search YouTube for "Charles Frank Kurtz", then spread word that miracles still happen to this very day! My being alive to even SAY 'MIRACLES HAPPEN!' is miraculous!!!

(FYI, I now remember WHO my wife is...;^D)

A man, his salary
A woman, her age

@Alpacario Yeah, it doesn't make much sense for any sailor to bring their children to a job as brutal as sailing.
