Wreck Of The Sloop John B
We come on the Sloop John B
My grandfather and me
Around Nassau Town we did roam
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well, I feel so broke up
I wanna go home
So hoist up the John B sails (Hoist up the John B sails)
See how the main-sail sets (See how the main-sail sets)
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home
I wanna go home (I wanna go home)
I wanna go home (I wanna go home)
Well, I feel so broke up
I wanna go home
The first mate, he got drunk (Drunk!)
Broke in the Captain's trunk (Trunk!)
Constable came and tried to take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone?
Well, I feel so broke up
I wanna go home
So hoist up the John B sails (Hoist up the John B sails)
See how the main-sail sets (See how the main-sail sets)
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home
I wanna go home (Let me go home)
Why don't you let me go home? (I wanna go home)
Well, I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

The poor cook he took fits
And through away all my grits
Then he took and he ate up all of my corn
Let me go home
Why don't they let me go home?
This is the worst trip
I've ever been on
So hoist up the John B sails (Hoist up the John B sails)
See how the main sail sets (See how the main-sail sets)
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home
I wanna go home
Why don't they let me go home?
I feel so broke up
I wanna go home
