about

Classic favorite traditional sea song, arranged with... are you ready... bluegrass instruments (mandolin, banjo, guitar, upright bass). And with a more folky than gritty traditional vocal arrangement.

A must-have for the music collection of every sailor, drunk or sober!

lyrics

What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
Earl-i in the morning

CHORUS:
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Earl-i in the morning

Put him in a long boat till he's sober,
Put him in a long boat till he's sober,
Put him in a long boat till he's sober,
Earl-i 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
Earl-i in the morning

Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
Put him in the scuppers with a hosepipe on him
Earl-i in the morning

Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowline
Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowline
Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowline
Earl-i in the morning

Tie him to the taffr'l a yardarm under
Tie him to the taffr'l a yardarm under
Tie him to the taffr'l a yardarm under
Earl-i in the morning

Put him in the bed with the captain's daughter,
Put him in the bed with the captain's daughter,
Put him in the bed with the captain's daughter,
Earli in the morning!
