Title: The Disabled Seaman - Album: Arrest These Merry Gentlemen - Artist: The Kipper Family

Sailor, sailor, will you marry me, with you smile so sunny Jim
Oh no nice girl I cannot marry you, for I have no teeth to put in
So off she went, to her grandfather's glass, and fished out some teeth , of the very highest class
And the sailor put them in
Oh
Sailor, sailor, will you marry me, with your rambling, rolling gait
Oh no nice girl I cannot marry you, for I'm one leg short of a set
So off she went, to her grandfather's table, and cut off a leg that was very, very stable
And the sailor screwed it in
Oh
Sailor, sailor, will you marry me, with your pigtail down your back
Oh no nice girl I cannot marry you, for its hair on my head that I lack
So off she went, to her grandfather's chest, and plucked him some hair of the very very best
And the sailor stuck it on
Oh
Sailor, sailor, will you marry me, with your sparkling eyes so jocular
Oh no nice girl I cannot marry you, for you see I am strictly monocular
She went to the marbles her grandfather'd lost, and brought him a bullseye of the very very best
And the sailor stuck it in
Oh
Sailor, sailor, will you marry me, with your great big marlin spike (pause)
Oh yes nice girl I'll surely marry you, for your just the kind of thing that I like.
So off they went to her grandfather's cradle, and there she discovered that this seaman was quite able
And the sailor put it in
