One More Day

Only one more day me Johnnies

One More Day

Oh Rock and Roll me over

Only one more day

Don’t you hear the old man growling

Don’t you hear the mate a howling

Don’t you hear the capstan pawling

Don’t you hear the pilot bawling

Only one more day of howling

Can’t you hear them girls a calling

Only one more day of rolling

Can’t you hear them girls a calling

Only one more day of furling

Only one more day of cursing

Oh heave inside the anchor Johnnies

For we’re close aboard the port Johnnies

Only one more day for Johnny

Your payday’s nearly due Johnny

Then pull out your long tail blue me Johnny

Make your port and take your pay Johnny

Only one more day of pumping

Only one more day of bracing

Oh we’re homeward bound today Johnny

We’ll leave the wheel of sorrow Johnny

Pack your bags today Johnny

And leave her where she lies Johnny

Only one more day of working

Oh rock and roll me over
