Sailor

Sailor, get your feet on the ground,
Get your leave, get your money, get your ass into town
(Lonely town, needs you around)
Sailor, won't you stay for awhile,
There's a town full of girls that could do with a smile
(Lonely girls, brush up your curls)

Get in the game, pick out the dame (dum de dum de dum)
This is the place where you set the pace (dum de dum de dum)
The streets are lit with the good times rolling
The bars are filled with the good stuff flowing
Set 'em up, Joe, let the booze flow
Give out the juice, she won't refuse (dum de dum de dum)
This is your chance for love and romance (dum de dum de dum)
Your leave is short but the action's growing
Get in the sheets before you start slowing down.

Hey, sailor, is there anything wrong?
There's a dame in your lap, but you don't get it on
(She's okay, so why don't you play?)
Sailor, is it true what they say,
That you mess with the boys when the girls are away?
(Bad bad boy, wrong kind of joy)

Do what she said, get into bed (dum de dum de dum)
Don't be afraid, for she knows her trade (dum de dum de dum)
You've got to live up to all those stories,
Sailor boy with your sexed-up glories
Set 'em up, Joe, let the booze flow
Pull up your socks, pull out the stops (dum de dum de dum)
Do what you can, she'll understand (dum de dum de dum)
It's hard to make up for all that sailing
Out on the sea, you lose all your training
Let the booze flow, let yourself go!

Sailor
censored version

Sailor, get your feet on the ground
Get your leave, get your money, get yourself into town
(Lonely town, needs you around)
Sailor, won't you stay for a while?
There's a town full of girls that could do with a smile
(Lonely girls, brush up your curls)

Get in the game, pick out the dame (dum de dum de dum)
This is the place where you set the pace (dum de dum de dum)
The streets are lit with the good time rolling
The bars are filled with the good stuff floating
Set 'em up Joe, let the booze flow!
Give out the juice, she won't refuse (dum de dum de dum)
This is your chance for love and romance (dum de dum de dum)
Your leave is short, but the action's growing
Get in the game before you start slowing down

Hey Sailor! Is there anything wrong?
There's a dame in your lap, but your star isn't on
(She's okay, so don't run away)
Sailor, is it true what they say?
That you don't look so tough when the girls are away?
(Poor, poor boy, where's all your joy?)

Do what you know, put on a show (dum de dum de dum)
Don't be afraid, you should have it made (dum de dum de dum)
You've got to live up to all of those stories
Sailor boy with your mixed-up glories
Set 'em up Joe, let the booze flow!
Pull up your socks, (Yeah!) Pull out the stops (dum de dum de dum)
Do what you can, they'll understand (dum de dum de dum)
It's hard to make up for all of that sailing
Out on the sea, you lose all your training
Let the booze flow, let yourself go!
