What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
Early in the morning?

Put him in the longboat till he's sober,
Put him in the longboat till he's sober,
Put him in the longboat till he's sober,
Early in the morning!

Put him in the longboat till he's sober,
Put him in the longboat till he's sober,

Put 'I'm in the bilge an' make 'I'm drink it,
Put 'I'm in the bilge an' make 'I'm drink it,
Put 'I'm in the bilge an' make 'I'm drink it,
Early in the morning!

What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
Early in the morning?

Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale it,
Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale it,
Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale it,
Early in the morning!

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Aahh... !

What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
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!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Aahh, aahh,...
Aahh, aahh,...

What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
What shall we do with the drunken sailor,
Early in the morning?

Put out the plug and wet him all over,
Put out the plug and wet him all over,
Put out the plug and wet him all over,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!
