SLOOP JOHN B. Lyrics – BEACH BOYS

We come on the sloop John B.
My grandfather and me.
Around Nassau town we did roam,
Drinkin’ all night
Got into a fight
Well, I feel so broke-up,
I wanna go home.

So hoist up the John B. sail,
See how the mainsail sets,
Call for the captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home!
I wanna go home!(yeah, yeah)
Well, I feel so broke-up,
I wanna go home!

The first mate, he got drunk,
Broke in the Captain’s trunk,
The Constable had to come and take him away!
Sheriff John Stone,
Why don’t you leave me alone?
Well, I feel so broke-up,
I wanna go home.

So, hoist up the John B. sail,

See how the mainsails set,
Call for the captain ashore,
Let me go home, let me go home!
I wanna go home, (let me go home)
Why don’t they let me go home?
(hoist up the John B. sail)
Well, I feel so broke-up,
I wanna go home.

The poor cook, he caught the fits,
Threw away all my grits,
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn!
Let me go home!
Why don’t they let me go home?

This is the worst trip I’ve ever been on!
So hoist up the John B. sail,
See how the mainsails set,
Call for the captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home…
I wanna go home….
