Lyrics

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!
