Sailors Life 

Sea farin’ be the life for me 
no law nor jail on open sea
my home sweet home be small indeed
a sailors life for me

A hard life chosen, I’ve to live
there’s lots to do aboard me ship
but not a care have I to give
a sailors life for me

Fore’er I’ll sail the sea, she’s mine
these hardened hands they suit me fine
workin‘, drinkin’ I’ll spend my time
a sailors life for me

But when I stay at dock for long
I’ll feast on wine women and song
Till the call o' the sea is much too strong
a sailors life for me
a sailors life for me
be always to the water true
my heart, my mind, my bawdy crew
the sailors life is all I need
the sea she is my bride indeed 
a sailors life for me
