Songtekst

I'm thinkin' 'bout, when I was a sailor
I spent my time on the open sea
When we'd stay off the coast of Jamaica

I'd secretly steal ashore
When natives were waitin' for
This boy with the lazy soul
Sing with a sailor

Vahevala, home of sailor
Vahevala, homeward sail away
Vahevala, home of sailor
Vahevala, homeward sail away

Ev'ry evnin', I'll be gone
Back on board by break of dawn


I'm thinkin' 'bout, the nights in Jamaica
Pretty girls, dancin' here and there
Stole a keg, an' now I'm drunk as a sailor
And Captain he don't know
Where Billy, he done go
But I'm singin' with the native girls
The song of the sailor (song of the sailor)

Vahevala, home of sailor
Vahevala, homeward sail away, yeah, yeah, yeah
Vahevala, home of sailor
Vahevala, homeward sail away

Hurry, sailor or sail away, yeah, yeah, yeah
You better be back on board
By break of day-e-e-e-e


Ev'ry night in Jamaica
I'd sing with the lady
And drink with the men
'Til the mornin' appear
Well, the sunshine is fresh on my face
As the song of the night
Puts the ring in my ear

(Vahevala, home of sailor)
(Vahevala, homeward sail away)
(Vahevala, home of sailor) yeah, yeah, yeah
(Vahevala, homeward sail away)

Ev'ry sailor sail away
(Vahevala, home of sailor)
I better be back on board by break of day
(Vahevala, home of sailor)
(Vahevala, homeward sail away)
(Vahevala, home of sailor)
(Vahevala, homeward sail away)
