We set sail at half-past morn,
Don't know when we're coming home,
And we'll drown our sorrow!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
We'll drink the night away!
Now, I don't know what there lies in store,
That's why I'm willing ,
Whit me spoons, and me fiddle,

Weigh, hey, hey!

I know it's true
The girls are brown and the ocean blue,
But you make more money!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
We'll drink the night away!
I must be off by morning's light,
So its one more kiss,
And one more song while the beer is flowing!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
We'll drink the night away!
When the sky is grey,
When the waves are high and the light is dying,
When I'm home again,

Weigh, hey, hey!

Weigh, hey, hey!

Weigh, hey, hey!

Weigh, hey, hey!
