Who´s that knocking at my door?
Who´s that knocking at my door?
Who´s that knocking at my door?
Cried the fair young maiden?

Its only me from over the sea
I m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
I´m all lit up like a Christmas tree
I´m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
I´ll sail the sea until I croak
I fight and swear and drink and smoke
But I can´t swim a bloomin stroke
I´m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor.


Are you young and handsome, sir?
Are you young and handsome, sir?
Are you young and handsome, sir?
Cried the fair young maiden.


I´m old and rough and dirty and tough
Said Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
I never can get drunk enough;
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
I drink my whiskey when I can
Whiskey from an old tin can
For whiskey is the life of man
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor


I’ll come down and let you in
I’ll come down and let you in
I’ll come down and let you in
Cried the fair young maiden


Well, hurry before I bust in the door
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
I’ll rare and tear and rant and roar,
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
I’ll spin you yarns and tell you lies
I’ll drink your wine and eat your pies
I’ll pinch your cheeks and black your eyes
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor


Sing me a love song low and sweet
Sing me a love song low and sweet
Sing me a love song low and sweet
Said the fair young maiden


Sixteen men on a dead man’s chest
Said Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum,
Sang Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
Oh, high jig-a-jig on the rolling sea,
And a hi and a ho, you’re the gal for me
Hoorah, me boys, for the Nancy Lee
Sang Barnacle Bill, the Sailor


Tell me that we soon shall wed,
Tell me that we soon shall wed,
Tell me that we soon shall wed,
Cried the fair young maiden


I’ve got me a wife in every port
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
The handsome gals is what I court,
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
With my false heart and flattering tongue
I courts ‚em all both old and young
I courts ‚em all, but marries none
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor


When shall I see you again?
When shall I see you again?
When shall I see you again?
Cried the fair young maiden


Never again, I’ll come no more
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
Tonight I’m sailing from this shore
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor
If you wait for me to come
Sit and wait and suck on your thumb
You’ll wait until the cows come home
I’m Barnacle Bill, the Sailor!
