Drunken Sailor (What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor?) chords
Irish Traditional  Oró Sé do Bheatha 'Bhaile

What'll we do with a drunken sailor?
What'll we do with a drunken sailor?
What'll we do with a drunken sailor?
G               Am
Earl-aye in the morning? 

Way, hey and up she rises
Patent blocks o diff'rent sizes, or (Way, hey and up she rises) 
Way, hey and up she rises
G               Am
Earl-aye in the morning 

1. Sling him in the long boat till he's sober,
2. Keep him there and make 'im bale 'er.
3. Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
4. Take 'im and shake 'im, try an' wake 'im.
5. Trice him up in a runnin' bowline.
6. Give 'im a taste of the bosun's rope-end.
7. Give 'im a dose of salt and water.
