Drunken Sailor - Lyrics to Drunken Sailor

This song is called a stomping bull shanty because when you get to the chorus part of Hooray and Up She Rises part you are encouraged to stomp your feet. Arguably the most famous sailor song in history, “Drunken Sailor” is a must at any pirate party, especially late in the evening.

It's another traditional song that has been recorded innumerable times The first published description of the shanty is found in an account of an 1839 whaling voyage out of New London, Connecticut to the Pacific Ocean. It was used as an example of a song that was "performed with very good effect when there is a long line of men hauling together". Capt. W. B. Whall claimed that this was one of only two shanties that were sung in the British Royal Navy. Sea shanties are 'work songs' a type of folk music, typically performed onboard a ship using the steady beat to help unite the worker's rhythm trying to make light of the hard work.

Lyrics to Drunken Sailor a Traditional Music Sea Shanty Recorded By The Pudenski Brothers

What you're gonna do with a drunken sailor?
What you're gonna do with a drunken sailor?
What you're gonna do with a drunken sailor?
Early in the morning!
 
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning!
 
Put him on a boat until he's sober
Put him on a boat until he's sober
Put him on a boat until he's sober
Early in the morning!
 
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning!
 
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Early in the morning!
 
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning!
 
That's what we do with a drunken sailor
That's what we do with a drunken sailor
That's what we do with a drunken sailor
Early in the morning!
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning!
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning!
