I've been in more ports than I can
from the land of Japan to the land
I've been on every kind of vessel that
from a battleship to a motorboat.
- I've got those Sailor blues!
I list to the starboard in a storm,
even the patches in my blues are getting
I'm sick of eating with a thousand
I'd give my left ball to eat alone
- Damn those Sailor Blues!
Over in Japan where I was happy and
the Shore patrol came and took my liberty
I tried it through the gate with a
fifth of gin
but those bastard MPs wouldn't let
- Got those Sailor Blues
Well I'm fed up to here with water
But I guess everything was my own fault.
I realize now I shouldn't have signed,
those goddamed papers that made the
- Lord, those Sailor Blues
There'll come a day you wait and see,
there'll come a day when I'll be free,
There'll come a day when I'll be out,
and the whole Damned world will here
- No more! No more Sailor Blues
