Lyrics

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

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Put him in the long boat till he's sober,
Put him in the long boat till he's sober,
Put him in the long boat till he's sober,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Put him in the bilge and make him drink it,
Put him in the bilge and make him drink it,
Put him in the bilge and make him drink it,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale her,
Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale her,
Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale her,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Tie him to the scuppers with the hose pipe on him,
Tie him to the scuppers with the hose pipe on him,
Tie him to the scuppers with the hose pipe on him,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, 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.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Tie him to the topmast while she's yardarm under,
Tie him to the topmast while she's yardarm under,
Tie him to the topmast while she's yardarm under,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowlin,
Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowlin,
Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowlin,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.

Keel haul him until he's sober,
Keel haul him until he's sober,
Keel haul him until he's sober,
Early in the morning.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, 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.

Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Hi-ho, and up she rises,
Early in the morning.
