Sloop John B. (Trad. arr Here Be Dragons)
This folk song made famous by the Beach Boys is still often sung in sing-along sessions in
Wales. Nice to have an English language song for "Gwlad!" too. We altered a couple of
lyrics just for fun.


We came in the Sloop John B. my Grandfather and me
Around Nasar town we did roam
Drinking all night got into a fight
I feel so broke up I wann ago home


CHORUS
So hoist up the John B sails see how the mainsail sets
Send for the Captain on shore let me go home
I wanna go home I wanna go ho-o-ome
I feel so broke up I wann ago home

The first mate he got drunk, he chucked up in the Captain’s trunk
The constable had to come to take him away
Sheriff Pete Stone won’t you leave me alone
I feel so broke up I wanna go home

CHORUS

The wierd cook's name was Nick and his food made us all feel sick
Then Ricahrd the cabin boydrank my bottle of rum
I wanna go home, I wanna go home
This is the worst trip I’ve ever been on


CHORUS
