words and music Traditional

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

Chorus:
Way hay and up she rises (x3)
Earl-aye in the morning

1. Put him in the long boat till he's sober,
2. Keep him there and make 'im bale 'er.
3. Shave his belly with a rusty razor.
4. Put him in bed with the captain's daughter.

Background: AS HEARD on DR DEMENTO! This song combines two unlikely songs, "Donald, Where's Your Trousers?" and "What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor" together into one hilarious song with drunken Scots and kilts flying. It's a Live Performance favorite!
