Weird Beard Lyrics

Artist: Ray Charles
Album: Ray Charles Sextet

The night was dark
the seas were rough
the port lay straight ahead
the booze ran out
the men grew tired and this is what they said
"captain if you cannot find a place to set her down"
"then you will be sleeping right along with this vessel in the ground!"

well the jolly roger pulled through and made it to the land,
we disembaked, went into town with vengence in our hand,
the children cried,
the women sighed,
the men just turned their heads,
with a smiled we chated loud and this is what we said
"wohohoho raise them in the air,
knock you up and slap you down,
and never seem to care.
wohohoho another one for me,
cause we're the filthy vermin,
that will set you people free,
cause we're the filthy vermin
that will set you people free."

with nothing left for us to drink,
the night was winding down,
but still the girls were swaggering,
and still hanging around.
"Oh mister can you tell me,
where i can find a man,
"the only thing that you will find miss,
is the back side of me hand!"

"wohohoho raise them in the air!
knock you up and slap you down,
and never seem to care!
wohohoho another one for me,
cause we're the filthy vermin,
that will set you people free.
cause we're the filthy vermin,
that will set you people free.
wohohoho raise them in the air,
knock you up and slap you down,
and never seem to care.
wohohoho another one for me,
cause we're the filthy vermin,
that will set you people free,
cause we're the filthy vermin,
that will set you people free!"
