Drunken Sailor Lyrics

Artist: Great Big Sea
Album: Great Big Sea

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus:
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning

Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

Put him in the hold with the Captain's daughter,
Put him in the hold with the Captain's daughter,
Put him in the hold with the Captain's daughter,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

Put him the back of the paddy wagon,
Put him the back of the paddy wagon,
Put him the back of the paddy wagon,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

Throw him in the lock-up 'til he's sober,
Throw him in the lock-up 'til he's sober,
Throw him in the lock-up 'til he's sober,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Chorus

Id like the idea of being locked up with the Capt daughter, If she's hot
by Gabby on 6/16/2008 5:26pm
Actually, the term "the captain's daughter" is navy slang for the cat o' nine tails, or a whip. Sailors that misbehaved would have their backs stripped of clothing and would be whipped.

My dad was Irish and he sang this song all the time. I just now at age 59 looked to see if it was really a song!! I love it!
by Po2 Barung on 11/19/2009 12:29am
I played this song for sea cadet band. RCSCC Mariner 307
by Bunny on 11/9/2010 6:22pm
I sing this song every time I'm on a bus drunk.
by Charsenal on 1/16/2011 11:30pm
We used to sing this song in music class when I was in grammar school. Along with "Jeremiah was a bullfrog" and "Mary Mack". No wonder I grew up selling booze for a living.
by JazzZ on 2/5/2011 6:54pm
As a third generation sailor, this song was like mother's milk to my grandfather, father, me, my wife (also a Navy vet.) and my children. Then my son went and joined the Army...go figure! My daughter adapts it to "What do you do with a fussy baby...earl-ey in the morning. Here are some other verses we always sang, but the most fun is making them up as you go.

Throw him the bilge and make him drink it....Earl-eye in the morning!

But you ain't seen the Captain's daughter....earl-eye in the Morning!
by Justin on 2/15/2011 11:36am
Was I the only person who learned it "Shave his nuts with a rusty razor?"

Also they forgot, Lash him to the mast, with a bit o line
by Denny on 2/18/2011 3:58pm
My father was in the navy and sung this all the time. He had another verse:

Keel-haul him til he's sober
Keel-haul him til he's sober
Keel-haul him til he's sober
Earl-eye in the mornin'
(you know that taking a person under the water all the length of the ship, hands and feet tied at either side of the boat)
by Duche on 3/9/2011 12:48pm

Some highschoolers came to our school and sang this and did some mid-evil play things... and danced... weird.
by :) on 6/26/2011 2:52pm
I love the song, but the polish translation is far more better. More interesting lyrics... and more funny :)
by Hank 3 on 8/16/2011 3:21pm

Check out the naval academy men's glee club version, it's the unofficial looking one, my personal favorite

I am another who learned this in elementary school. Crawdad too! Fun days pre-PC! We used "Put him in the long boat 'til he's sober"
by Walt Andrews on 11/24/2012 3:38am

by Irish Smarty Pants on 11/24/2013 8:44pm
I heard it also as
"Put him in the long boat till he's sober" but I never heard the paddy wagon verse....can't see a wagon on a British Ship...LOL
by Mark on 1/11/2014 3:45pm
hit him in the face with a forty pound mackerel
by Susan on 2/9/2014 2:34pm
My daughter is singing a song that goes by this tune for her second grade music program about the environment. Instead it says "what do you do with a global warmer". I knew it sounded familiar, so I had to look this up. It's crazy how they decided to use this tune to come up with that song, so people will put a global warmer in the same "boat" as a drunken sailor. Aren't we all global warmers just because we exist?
