words and music Traditional

Cliff Haslam – lead vocal and guitar. Joseph Morneault – tenor banjo, whistle, chorus. Tim Marth, Dan Pardo, Tim Rowe – chorus.

Chorus:
And it’s all for me grog! Me jolly, jolly grog!
All for me beer and tobacco!
For I spent all me tin with the lassies drinking gin;
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

Where are me boots? Me noggin’, noggin’ boots?
All gone for beer and tobacco!
The uppers are worn out and the heels are knocked about
And the toes are looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me shirt? Me noggin’, noggin’ shirt?
All gone for beer and tobacco!
For the collar is all worn, the front is knocked about.
And me ass is looking out for better weather

Chorus

Where is me bed? Me noggin’ noggin bed?
All gone for beer and tobacco!
For I lent it to a whore, the mattress is all wore,
And the springs are looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me boat? Me noggin’, noggin’ boat?
All gone for beer and tobacco!
Her keel is on a rock, the sails they are in hock.
And her mast is looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me song? Me noggin’, noggin’ song?
All gone for beer and tobacco!
Well me throat is all wore out and me tonsils knocked about
And the tune is looking out for better weather.

Chorus

I’m sick in the head and I haven’t been to bed
Since first I came ashore with me plunder.
I see centipedes and snakes, and I’m full of pains and aches,
And I think I’ll strike a path out over yonder.

Chorus 2x
