Sloop John B

In the style of

The Beach Boys

Lyrics

we come on
the sloop john "b"
my grandfather
and me
around nassau town
we do roam

drinkin' all night
got into a fight
well i feel so broke up
i wanna go home

so hoist up
the john "b" sail
see how
the mainsail sets
call for
the captain ashore
let me go home

let me go home
i wanna go home
a-yeah yeah
well i feel so broke up
i wanna go home

the first mate
he got drunk
broke in
the captain's trunk
the constable
had to come
and take him away

sheriff john stone
why don't you
leave me alone
yeah yeah
well i feel so broke up
i wanna go home

so hoist up
the john "b" sail
see how
the mainsail sets
call for
the captain ashore
let me go home

i wanna go home
why don't they
let me go home
well i feel so broke up
i wanna go home

the poor cook
he caught the fits
and threw away
all my grits
and then he took
and he ate up
all of my corn

let me go home
why don't they
let me go home
this is the worst trip
i've ever been on

so hoist up
the john "b" sail
see how
the mainsail sets
call for
the captain ashore
let me go home
i wanna go home
