Can anybody help with a song that my Sea Daddy used to sing? It started "I fell in love with a three badge Stoker,
Trollied his arxe on a blank weekend.
I don't remember all the words but it was sung to the tune "A Lonely Goatherd" from the Sound of Music if that jolts any memories.

I've played the Wild Rover for many a year
And I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for a Red Stripe, she answered me "nay"
She said, "Patrons like you, I can get any day!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

From out of my pockets I took moneys bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said, "I have Red Stripes, and wines of the best,
And the words that I said, son, were only in jest!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I'll go back to Jamaica and lie in the sun
But I will play the part of the prodigal son
And if my girl loves me, as oft' times before
Then I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.
I've been a folk singer for many a year
And I never will sing the Wild Rover no more!
 
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
Me granddad used to sing this in the navy glad someone posted it on here! One of my favourites aha

Many thanks to JFP for prompting me to ask if anyone can recall the words of another song which referred to a "three badge stoker", sung to the tune of "Frankie and Johnny"? I was told it was part of the extensive repertoire of songs sung by a former Master Gunner called Eddie Phillips, who couldn't read a note of music but played brilliantly by ear.

The opening lines were something like:

"Listen, I'll tell you a story/It happened in Malta you know/It's all about a three badge stoker/And his lover Smoky Joe".

A vague aroma of the gents’ urinal,
The way you wipe your arse upon the late night final,
Oh, when I piss, how it stings, these foolish things, remind me of you.
And similar verses.
