DUBLINERS


Go To Sea No More Lyrics

When first I landed in Liverpool, I went upon a spree
Me money alas I spent it fast, got drunk as drunk could
be
And when that me money was all gone, 'twas then I
wanted more
But a man must be blind to make up his mind to go to
sea once more

Once more, boys, once more, go to sea once more
But a man must be blind to make up his mind to go to
sea once more

I spent the night with Angeline too drunk to roll in
bed
Me watch was new and me money too, in the morning with
them she fled
And as I walked the streets about, the whores they all
did roar
There goes Jack Strapp, the poor sailorlad, he must go
to sea once more

Once more, boys, once more, go to sea once more
There goes Jack Spratt, the poor sailorlad, he must go
to sea once more

And as I walked the streets about, I met with the
Rapper Brown
I asked him for to take me on and he looked at me with
a frown
He said last time you was paid off with me you could no
score
But I'll give you a chance and I'll take your advance
and I'll send you to see once more

Once more, boys, once more, send you to sea once more
I'll give you a chance and I'll take your advance and
I'll send you to see once more

He shipped me on board of a whaling ship bound for the
arctic seas
Where the cold winds blow through the frost and snow
and Jamaica rum would freeze
But worse to bear, I'd no hard weather gear for I'd
spent all money on shore
'twas then that I wished that I was dead and could go
to sea no more

No more, boys, no more, go to sea no more
'twas then that I wished that I was dead and could go
to sea no more

So come all you bold seafaring men, who listen to me
song
When you come off them long trips, I'll have you not go
wrong
Take my advice, drink no strong drink, don't go
sleeping with them whores
Get married instead and spend all night in bed and go
to sea no more

No more, boys, no more, go to sea no more
Get married instead and spend all night in bed and go
to sea no more
