Well my father often told me when I was just a lad,
A sailors life was very hard,
The food was always bad.
But now I've joined the navy am abord a Man o' war,
Now I found a sailor aint a sailor anymore.

Don't haul on the ropes,
Don't climb up the mast,
If you see a sailing ship it might be your last. Get your Civvis aready for another run ashore,
A sailor aint a sailor aint a sailor anymore.

Well the killy cover mess says we have it soft, it wasn't like that in his day,
when we were up aloft.
We like our bunks and sleeping bags,whats a hammok for?
swinging from the deck head or lying on the floor.

Don't haul on the ropes,
Don't climb up the mast,
If you see a sailing ship it might be your last. Get your Civvis aready for another run ashore,
A sailor aint a sailor aint a sailor anymore.

Well they gave us an engine that first went up and down,
then with more technology the engine went around.
We now steam and desil but whats it mainly for? A stoker aint a stoker with a shovel anymore.

Don't haul on the ropes,
Don't climb up the mast,
If you see a sailing ship it might be your last. Get your Civvis aready for another run ashore,
a sailor aint a sailor aint a sailor anymore.

Well they gave us a norestump so we could do it right,
they gave us a radio we signal day and night.
We know our code and cypher so whats the semaphore?
A bump n glass a dozen aint a toss anymore.

Don't haul on the ropes,
Don't climb up the mast,
If you see a sailing ship it might be your last. Get your Civvis aready for another run ashore,
a sailor aint a sailor aint a sailor anymore.

Two cans of beer a day and thats you're bleeding lot.
But now we have an extra one becuase we stopped the tot.
So, we'll put on our civvie clothes for another run ashore,
a sailors just a sailor, just like he was before.

Don't haul on the ropes,
Don't climb up the mast,
If you see a sailing ship it might be your last. Get your Civvis aready for another run ashore,
a sailor aint a sailor aint a sailor anymore.

Don't haul on the ropes,
Don't climb up the mast,
If you see a sailing ship it might be your last. Get your Civvis aready for another run ashore
a sailor aint a sailor aint a sailor anymore.
