Favourite matelot song

Apoliogies if this has already been covered, but what is every ones favourite drunk matelot song.

My particular song of choice is the lobster song :lol:
 
Gizza a reminder on that one (greycells fading etc)

What about:

'I don't want to join the Navy,
I don't want to go to sea.
I'd rather hang around
Piccadilly underground
etc etc....

Four and twenty virgins
Came down from Inverness.......

Lots more, but I need to be sozzled to remember them :!:

Shep Wooley probably has 'em all recorded anyway.
:lol:

You asked for it

"Oh Mr Fisherman home from the sea have you got a lobster you can sell to me?

Singing Ho Tiddly Ho s**t or bust
Never let your B***ocks dangle in the dust"

What about Aladdin??

Dock yard maties children, sitting on a dockyard wall.
Watching their fathers doing F**k all.
When they grow older, they'll be dock yard maties too.
Just like their Fathers, F**k all to do.

Song from the Bier Keller Plymouth circa 1974 - (I've never heard it since)

She wore, she wore, she wore a yellow ribbon
She wore a yellow ribbon in the merry month of May
and if you asked her why the hell she wore it
She wore it for a Tiffy who is far far away.

Booties had a different song but same tune - kept trying to drown each other out
 
About as much as I can remember....

There once was a lad named Aladdin
Who had magic lamp.......

da de da de da .......etc etc

'fathoms up a tramp'

This could roll on for a few years.

Now sit me down
Buy me a drink
And a story to you I'll tell
Of dead eye dick with the cast iron pr**k
And a harlot named ESKIMO NELL

Yeah I remember that one we used to sing it all the time at Fisgard as a baby tiff in 1971.

She wore, she wore, she wore a yellow ribbon

and if you asked her why the hell she wore it
She wore it for a Tiffy who is far far away.

far away.....not far enough ....far away ....not far enough

She wore it for a tiffy who was far far away

What about the old Shep Woolley favourite

I was walking thro the dockyard one morning bright and fair
When a sailor came towards me he had long and shaggy hair
And he looked for all the world as though he didn't have a care
And he said "Why are you looking at me? "
He said....
See me in me civvies mate
I'm really quite the stuff
And when I puts me Brut on
I smells just like a pouf, I'm a smoothie from R N B....


La la la la lalalaaaa la la la la laaaa



La la la la lalalaaaa la la la la laaaa


La la la la lalalaaaa la la la la laaaa

Ram it mate I'm R D P

There once was a lad called Alladin
Who had a magic Lamp
He stole it off a Matelot who was fathoms up a tramp
He stole it off a Matelot to see what he could get
And he rubbbed and rubbed and rubbed and rubbed
But he ain't got F***all yet

La de da fiddle dee
60 annas equals one rupee
feed of ar8e up a sycamour tree
poor bu**er Janner

The Sultan saidf to Alladin
my palace you will paint
Alladin like a big OD said - No I fu**in aint
So he armed himself with a paintbrush and a pot of black enamel
and he shoved it up the A**sehole of the sultan's favourite camel

And we'll all go back to Oggie land (where's that)
to Oggie land (where's that )
To Oggieland
And we'll all go back to Oggie land
Where they cant tell ???? from tissue paper tissue paper marmalade and jam
 

Flipper

Newbie
Do your balls hang low
Can you swing 'em to and fro
Can you tie 'em in a knot
Can you tie 'em in a bow
Do you get a funny feeling
When they're hanging from the ceiling
Oh you'll never be a sailor if your balls hang low!

(Perhaps not the original lyrics but I like 'em!)
