All for Me Grog

Where are me boots, me noggin’ noggin’ boots?
All sold for beer and tobacco.
For the soles they are worn out,
And the tongue is hanging out,
And me toes are looking out for better weather.

And it’s all for me grog, me jolly jolly grog,
All gone for beer and tobacco,
Well, I’ve spent all me tin with the lasses drinking gin,
And across the western ocean I must wander.

Where is me shirt, me noggin’ noggin’ shirt?
All sold for beer and tobacco.
For the sleeves they are worn out,
And the collar’s turned about,
And me arse is looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me hat, me noggin’ noggin’ hat?
All sold for beer and tobacco.
For the brim it is worn out,
And the crown is flying about,
And me hair is looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me coat, me noggin’ noggin’ coat?
All sold for beer and tobacco.
For the sides they are worn out,
And the back is flying about,
And the lining’s looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where are me pants, me noggin’ noggin’ pants?
All sold for beer and tobacco.
For the pockets are worn out,
And the seat’s all flying about,
And me knees are looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Well I’m sick in me head and I haven’t been to bed,
Since first I came ashore with all me plunder.
I’ve seen centipedes and snakes,
And me head is full of aches,
And I think I’ll pick a path to way up yonder.

Chorus
