Albert's Song

 

' Arken do. I think I 'ere sum people arriving now. 

Git up of ov the floor, Lorna me  'ansome and let un indoors. 

Some brae wind blowing, yew. Com' us on in and sit yerself down.

Ther be a terr'ble storm brewin' so shut the door to. 

'Ow many of 'ee are ther ?. Seem to be a brae bunch  of 'ee. Sit yerself down and  warm your backsides at the fire and your insides with a tot.  

 Cap'n Albert  is playing a sea shanty, so sing along  a we why don't  'ee. 

The more the merrier...............................

What will we do with the drunken sailor?
What will we do with the drunken sailor?
What will we do with the drunken sailor?
Earlye in the morning?

Chorus
Way, hay up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Earlye in the morning!


Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him

Hoist him aboard with a running bowline

Put him in the brig until he's sober.

Make him turn to at shining bright work.
