YO HO HO AND A BOTTLE OF RUM

Yo Ho Ho And A Bottle Of Rum
Fifteen men on a dead man's chest 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum 
Drink and the devil be done for the rest 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

The mate was fixed by the bos'n's pike
The bos'n' brained with a markin spike 
And Cookey's throat was marked belike 
It had been gripped by
fingers ten 
And there they lay all good dead men 
Like break o' day in a boozing ken
Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum

Fifteen men of a whole ship's list 
Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum
Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist! 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

The skipper lay with his nob in gore 
Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore
And the scullion he was stabbed times four 
And there he lay and the soggy skies
Dripped all day in up-staring eyes 
At murk sunset and at foul sur-prise 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

Fifteen men of ‘em stiff and stark 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Ten of the crew had the murder mark 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

‘Twas a cutlass swipe or and ounce of lead 
Or a yawning hole in a battered head
and the scuppers glut with a yawning red 
And there they lay aye damn my eyes
All lookouts clapped on par - a - dise 
All souls bound just con – tra – ri - wise 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

Fifteen men of ‘em good and true 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Every man Jack could ha' sailed with old Pew 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

There was chest on chest of Spanish gold 
With a ton of plate in the middle hold
And the cabins riot with stuff un told 
As they lay there that had took the plum
With a sightless glare and their lips struck dumb
While we shared all by the rule of thumb 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

Fifteen men of a dead man's chest 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

We wrapped ‘em all in a mains'l tight 
With twice ten turns of a hausers bight
And we heaved ‘em over and out of sight 
With a yo heave ho and fare you well
And a sullen plunge in a sullen swell
Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell 
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
