On The Deep Blue Sea (Buddy Wasisname)

If I had me sooners,
I'd sooner have a schooner,
When we blocked the dories up
we'd sail away from motorboats;
I'd spend the rest of my sailing days
rolling on the deep,
Rolling on the sea boys,
rolling on the deep blue sea.

And if I had me druthers,
I'd rather have me brudders,
The younger at the rigging
and the elder at the wheel;
And when we'd hoist our sails away
we'd roll upon the deep,
Roll upon the sea boys,
roll upon the deep blue sea.

And everything was my way,
for I've no use for highways,
Neptune's breeze would blow us on
as mermaids quickly sing their songs;
And as her days and cheeks go dark
we'd sail upon the deep,
Sail upon the sea boys,
sail upon the deep blue sea.

Alas! I must be dreaming,
from now on I'll be steaming,
What good is my old body at eighty years
the strength's all gone;
But many's the day I spent of my youth,
I'd sail upon the deep,
Sail upon the sea with me brothers
on the deep blue sea.

De-diddley-diddley-diddley-dum,
De-diddley-diddley-diddley-dum,
De-diddley-diddley-diddley-dum,
De-diddley-diddley-diddley-dum.
De-diddley-diddley-diddley-dum,
De-diddley-diddley-diddley-dum.
