W:Chorus:
W:And, it's all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
W:It's all for me beer and tobacco,
W:Well I spent all me tin with the lassies drinking gin.
W:Far across the western ocean I must wander.
W:
W:I'm sick in the head and I haven't been to bed,
W:Since first I came ashore with me plunder,
W:I've seen centipedes and snakes and me head is full of aches,
W:And I have to take a path for way out yonder.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Where are me boots, me noggin', noggin' boots?
W:They're all sold for beer and tobacco,
W:For the heels they were worn out and the toes were kicked about,
W:And the soles were looking out for better weather.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Where is me shirt, me noggin', noggin' shirt?
W:It's all sold for beer and tobacco,
W:For the collar was all worn, and the sleeves they were all torn,
W:And the tail was looking out for better weather.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Where is me wife, me noggin', noggin' wife,
W:She's all sold for beer and tobacco,
W:You see her front it was worn out and her tail got kicked about,
W:And I'm sure she's lookin' out for better weather.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Where is me bed, me noggin', noggin' bed,
W:It's all sold for beer and tobacco,
W:You see I sold it to the girls until the springs were all in twirls,
W:And the sheets they're lookin' out for better weather.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Alternative versions of verses 2 and 3:
W:
W:Where are me boots, me noggin', noggin' boots,
W:They're all sold for beer and tobacco,
W:See the soles they were thin and the uppers were lettin' in,
W:And the heels were lookin' out for better weather.
W:
W:Where is me shirt, me noggin', noggin' shirt,
W:It's all sold for beer and tobacco,
W:You see the sleeves were all worn out and the collar been turned about,
W:And the tail was lookin' out for better weather.
