    [Lets keep it clean here guys, censor yourselves in case the auto sensor doesn't work, otherwise I gotta put this in the NightShift Forum away from here]

    Barnacle Bill clean version:










    Barnacle Bill the Sailor



    (Robinson - Luther)

    Transcribed from Louis Jordan's Elks Rendezvous Band, vocal by Louis Jordan, recorded December 20, 1938.
    From Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five, 1934-1940; The Chronogical Classics, 636.
    Who's that knocking at my door?
    Who's that knocking at my door?
    Who's that knocking at my door?
    Said the fair young maiden!
    Well, it's only me from over the sea,
    Said Barnacle Bill the Sailor,
    I'm all lit up like a Christmas tree,
    Said Barnacle Bill the Sailor.
    I'll sail the sea until I croak,
    Drink my whiskey, swear, and smoke,
    But I can't swim a bloody stroke,
    Said Barnacle Bill the Sailor.
    Tell me when we soon shall wed,
    Tell me when we soon shall wed,
    Tell me when we soon shall wed,
    Said the fair young maiden.
    Uh-uh!
    I got me a wife in every port,
    Said Barnacle Bill the Sailor.
    The handsome gals is what I court,
    Said Barnacle Bill the Sailor.
    With my false heart and flattering tongue
    I courts 'em all both old and young,
    I courts 'em all, but marries none,
    Said Barnacle Bill the Sailor. So good-bye,
    Good-bye,
    So long, toots,
    I'll see you again!

    Default The old salt

    The Old Salt


    There was an old sailor of Crete
    Whose peg legs propelled him quite neat.
    “Strong liquor,” he said,
    “Never goes to my head,
    And I know it can’t go to my feet.”

    There was a fly fisher named Dave
    Who's money he decided to save
    to buy a new boat
    down the river to float
    So to his friends on the bank he could wave
