Stormy Weather

Come all you young sailor men, listen to me
I’ll sing you a song of the fish in the sea;

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Up jumps the eel with his slippery tail
Climbs up aloft and reefs the topsail

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Then up jumps the shark with his nine rows of teeth
Saying, “You eat the dough boys, and I’ll eat the beef!”

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Up jumps the lobster with his heavy claws,
Bites the main boom right off by the jaws!

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Up jumps the halibut, lies flat on the deck
He says, ‘Mister Captain, don’t step on my neck!’

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Up jumps the herring, the king of the sea,
Saying, ‘All other fishes, now you follow me!’

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Up jumps the whale, the largest of all
“If you want any wind, well, I’ll blow ye a squall!”

And it’s…
Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Windy weather, boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows, we’re all together, boys;
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes

Come all you young sailormen, listen to me
I’ll sing you a song of the fish in the sea,
and it’s…
Windy weather boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows we’re all together, boys
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes.

Up jumps the codfish with his chuckle-head,
He runs out up forward and throws out the lead!
and it’s…
Windy weather boys, stormy weather, boys
When the wind blows we’re all together, boys
Blow ye winds westerly, blow ye winds, blow
Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes.

Jolly sou’wester, boys, steady she goes.
