Captain Black (we sail for hell)

the Captain sailed the seven seas
haul away, haul away
the Captain sailed the seven seas
his hair hung down to the bugger’s knees
and you can’t squeeze a girl if a girl don’t squeeze
and we sail for hell in the morning

the Captain’s name was Jonny Black
haul away, haul away
the Captain’s name was Jonny Black
and he’d lay his cat across your back
and you can’t tack a ship if the ship won’t tack
and we sail for hell in the morning

he married a girl called Sally Brown
haul away, haul away
he married a girl called Sally Brown
sold her for a bottle and half a crown
and you can’t drown a cat if the cat won’t drown
and we sail for hell in the morning

he bought a pub down by the dock
haul away, haul away
he bought a pub down by the dock
the bugger stays open round the clock
and you cant’ block the way if the way won’t block
and we sail for hell in the morning

when he died he went to hell
haul away, haul away
when he died he went to hell
slept with the devil and his wife as well
and you can’t bell a cat if you ain’t got a bell
and we sail for hell in the morning
meet up with the Captain in the morning
