 There's fun, games and dancing at the Inn. The Crew sing a typical nautical chanty - a haul'em away song and dance poking fun at the First Mate.

LYRIC

SAILOR#1 CALLS &  CREW REPLIES

 

IT WAS ON THE DEEP WE WERE NORWARD BOUND

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

WHEN THE FIRST MATE SAYS WE MUST TURN AROUND!

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN

 

SO THE MASTER CALLS FROM HIS SWINGING BUNK

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

PAY NO HEED BOYS HE MUST BE DRUNK

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN

 

NO NO SAID THE MATE I NARY TOUCHED A DROP

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

THERE’S A REASON TRUE WHY THIS SHIP MUST STOP

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN  

 

THEN THE FLAG MAN SHOUTS FROM HIS LOFTY PERCH

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

‘AYE THE ANSWER’S WAITING AT THE MARINERS CHURCH’

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN

 

THERE’S A PARSON STANDING AT THE ALTAR WAY  

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

WITH A WOMAN WHO WAS PROMISED SHE’D BE MARRIED TODAY

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN

 

BUT THERE’S SOMEONE MISSING FROM THIS SCENE SO FAIR

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

THE FIRST MATE’S HERE WHEN HE SHOULD BE THERE

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN

 

SO WHY ASKS THE CAP’N DID HE PUT TO SEA

              NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR

COS HE’S ALREADY GOT A WIFE AND A FAMILY!

              YOU CAN TAKE HIS WIFE, YOU CAN TAKE HIS LIFE...

              BUT NEVER TAKE A DRINK, NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK,

              OH... NEVER TAKE A DRINK FROM A SAILOR MAN.
