Burl Ives – Drunken Sailor lyrics

What should we do with a drunken SANTA
What should we do with a drunken SANTA
What should we do with a drunken SANTA
Early in the morning

Chorus...

Give him a hair of the dog that bit him
Give him a hair of the dog that bit him
Give him a hair of the dog that bit him
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 morn'

Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him
Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him
Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him
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 morn'

Hoist him up to the topsail yardarm
Hoist him up to the topsail yardarm
Hoist him up to the topsail yardarm
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 morn'

Throw him in the brig until he's sober
Throw him in the brig until he's sober
Throw him in the brig until he's 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 morn'

That's what to do with a drunken sailor
That's what to do with a drunken sailor
That's what to 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 morn'
