Pay Me My Money Down
The Longest Johns Lyrics


I thought I heard the captain say,
(Pay me my money down)
"Tomorrow is our sailing day."
(Pay me my money down)

Well, pay me! (pay me!) pay me! (pay me!)
Pay me my money down!
Pay me or go to jail!
Pay me my money down!
As soon as the boat was clear of the bar,
(Pay me my money down)
The captain knocked me with a spar
(Pay me my money down)

Well, pay me! (pay me!) pay me! (pay me!)
Pay me my money down!
Pay me or go to jail!
Pay me my money down!

I wish I was a rich man's son,
(Pay me my money down)
I'd sit by the river and drink dark rum (mm!)
(Pay me my money down)

Well I wish I was Mr. Gates,
(Pay me my money down)
They'd bring my money down in crates!
(Pay me my money down)

Well forty nights, nights at sea!
(Pay me my money down)
The captain bled every last dollar out of me!
(Pay me my money down)

Well, pay me! (pay me!) pay me! (pay me!)
Pay me my money down!
Pay me or go to jail!
Pay me my money down!
