1. First Shantyman
I went a-sailin in April an docked in June,
If ye give me some whiskey Ill sing ye a tune.
Me crew sailed the Pacific an down the southern sea,
I drank the pubs dry with a gal on each knee.
Them island gals are wild by the bay,
Wid them Id spend me sea leg pay.
Wid Mary an' Meg an Polly too,
Id drink an dance 'tll me stomach spew.
This one gal Jane caught me eye,
Courted er at once on the shores of Lanai.
Just me an me gal sailed the southern isles,
A fiery rendezvous went on for miles.
Luscious palms, steamy showers an' sizzlin sun,
Just me an me gal, I knew I found me the one.
Just me an me gal singin the sweet song of love,
Surrounded by paradise an debris from land above.
