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

Put him in the longboat till he's sober,
Early in the morning!
Hooray and up she rises,
Early in the morning!

Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
Early…

Give him a hair of the dog that bit him,
Early…

Give him a dose of salt and water,
Early…

Give him a dash with a bossom’s rubber,
Early…

Put him in the scuppers with a hose pipe on him,
Early…

Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Early…

That's what we do with the drunken sailor,
Early…
