They say life has its ups and downs 
That really now is quite profound 
I’d like to push the capstan round 
But it’s pump me boys before we drown.  
Pump me boys, pump ’er dry 
Down to hell and up to the sky 
Bend your back and break your bones 
We’re just a thousand miles from home. 

The ocean we all do adore 
So come on lads let’s pump some more 
Don’t worry if you’re stiff and sore 
I’m sure we’ve pumped this bit before.  (Chorus)

The captain’s daughter, I suppose 
Could be called an English Rose 
What would you think when I propose 
The pox she gave to me a dose.  (Chorus)

This Rose well she did prick me sore, 
I’ve never felt so bad before 
Thanks to the girl I do adore 
I thought I’d never pump no more.  (Chorus)

I called the doctor right away 
To find out what he had to say 
“That’s two pounds ten - get on your way” 
I’m sure the girl is in his pay.  (Chorus)

Sometimes when I am in me bed 
And thinking of me day ahead 
I wish that I could wake up dead 
But pumping’s all I get instead.  (Chorus)

Yes, how I wish that I could die 
The swine who built this tub to find 
I’d drag him back from where he fries 
To pump until the beggar’s dry.  (Chorus)

If Noah used him for his ark 
Oh wouldn’t that have been a lark? 
>From rising sun ’til getting dark 
The animals all hard at work (singin’)  (Chorus)

There’s so much water down below 
Just how it got there I don’t know 
The old man says, “Let’s roll and go” 
But I think we’re bound for Davy Jones.  (Chorus x2)
