Lyrics
Chorus:
What shall we do with a drunken sailor, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning?
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.

Put him in the longboat 'til he's sober, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.

Tie him to the scuppers with a hosepipe on him, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.

Repeat Chorus

Shave his belly with a rusty razor, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.

Kick 'im where it hurts and steal his girlfriend, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.    

Repeat Chorus

Put him into bed with with the Captain's daughter, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
She's got a face like a frozen mackerel, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.

What shall we do with a drunken sailor?
Put him at the wheel of an Exxon tanker.
Drink up, boys, we'll make the water
Oil-ie in the morning.
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.

Final Chorus:
That's what we do with a drunken sailor, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning?
Way hey, and up she rises, (3x)
Ear-lie in the morning.
