lyrics

I wanna go to 'Frisco bay
Drink my liquor and spend my pay
Sling my hammock and hoist the boat
Knuckle under and learn the ropes
Action stations, all correct
Trim the rigging and swab the deck
Hard to starboard - man ahoy
I wanna be your cabin boy
All night... all night
All night long

Cabin boy work night and day
Cabin boy goes all the way
Man the capstan, work the pump
Cook and carry and fetch and hump
Set the sextant, strip the guns
Wanna bite the biscuit, beat the drums
Do the hornpipe - jump for joy
I wanna be your cabin boy
All night... all night
All night long

I wanna be your cabin boy all night
I wanna be your cabin boy all night
All night long...

Set the sextant, strip the guns
Wanna bite the biscuit, beat the drums
Do the duties I enjoy
I wanna be your cabin boy all night
(I wanna be your cabin boy)
(I wanna be your cabin boy)
Yeah - yeah

I wanna be your cabin boy all night
I wanna be your cabin boy all night
All night.
