lyrics

Lay him on the deck, and rock him gently
Early in the morning

Send him up the rigging for to catch an angel
Early in the morning

What shall we do with our drunken sailor
Early in the morning

Give him a dose of salt and water
Early in the morning

Send him down below and the devil with him
Early in the morning

Scrape the hair off his chest with a hoop iron razor
Early in the morning

What shall we do with our drunken sailor
Early in the morning

Keel haul him in the deep, dark water
Early in the morning

Wrap him in a sail and let the tide take him

Home.
