Dropkick Murphys – I'm Shipping Up To Boston lyrics
I'm a sailor peg
And I've lost my leg
Climbing up the top sails
I've lost my leg!

I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping off... To find my wooden leg

I'm a sailor peg
And I've lost my leg
Climbing up the top sails
I've lost my leg!

I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping off... To find my wooden leg

    Boston at the time was one of the only places that a man or sailor could get a custom wooden leg made just for his body type. Like the first vers states "i'm a sailor peg, and i lost my leg. " he has the peg now to get around with but a fine leg with a shoe of his choice is waiting for him in boston. Thus "i'm shipping up to boston... To find my wooden leg. "
