All For Me Grog

Traditional

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
For I spent all me tin, with the landfolk drinking gin,
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

Where are me boots, me noggy, noggin’ boots?
All gone for beer and tobacco.
For the toe it is worn out, and the heels are knocked about,
And the soles are looking up for better weather.

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
For I spent all me tin, with the landfolk drinking gin,
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

Where is me shirt, my noggy, noggin’ shirt?
All gone for beer and tobacco.
For the collar is all wore, and the sleeves they are all tore,
And the tail is looking up for better weather.

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
For I spent all me copper, on a shirt that’s right and proper,
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

Where is me Ship, me noggy, noggin’ ship,
All gone for beer and tobacco.
Well I lent it to a pirate, now the crew’s all in a riot,
And the Sails are looking up for better weather.

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
Well I spent all me gold on a ship that’s proud and bold,
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

Where is me crew, me noggy, noggin’ crew?
All gone for beer and tobacco.
Well the first mate’s in his bunk, and the cabin folks is drunk,
And bosun’s looking up for better weather!

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
Well I’ll spend all me loot on the crew I will recruit,
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

And I’m sick in the head (YEP!), I haven’t been to bed,
Since I came ashore with me plunder.
I’ve seen centipedes and snakes, and I’m full of pains and aches,
And I think I’ll make a path for way out yonder.

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
For I spent all me tin, with the landfolk drinking gin,
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
All for me beer and tobacco.
For I spent all me tin, with the landfolk drinking gin,
(Slowly)Far across the western ocean I must wander.
