All For Me Grog

"All For Me Grog"

Traditional, arranged by Scott Cooley.

Chorus:

All for me grog, me jolly jolly grog

All for me beer and tobacco

For I spent up all me tin on the lasses drinking gin

And across the western ocean I must wander

Where is me boots, me noggin noggin boots

All gone for beer and tobacco

You see the sole's were gettin' thin and the uppers letting in

And the toes are lookin’ out for better weather

Repeat chorus

Where is me shirt, me noggin noggin shirt

All gone for beer and tobacco

You see the sleeves they got worn out, and the collar turned about

And the tail is lookin' out for better weather

Repeat chorus

Where is me wife, me noggin noggin wife

She’s all gone for beer and tobacco

You see her front it got worn out, and her tail’s been kicked about

And I'm sure she's looking out for better weather

Repeat chorus

Where is me wench, me noggin noggin wench

She’s all gone for beer and tobacco

Oh, her lips is all wore out, and the front is knocked about

Now her tail is lookin’ out for better weather

Repeat chorus

And where is me bed, me noggin noggin bed

It’s all gone for beer and tobacco

For the mattress is all tore, for I lent it to a whore

But the springs are lookin’ out for better weather

Repeat chorus

I’m sick in the head, I haven’t been to bed

Since first I came ashore with me plunder

I see centipedes and snakes and I’m full of pains and aches

And I think I’ll take a trip out over yonder

Repeat chorus
