Oscar Brand – Barnacle Bill Lyrics

[Spoken]
Who's that knocking at my door? *Knocking*
Who's that knocking at my door? *Knocking*
Who's that knocking at my door? *Knocking*
Cried the fair young maiden

[Verse 1]
It's only me from over the seas
Cried Barnacle Bill the Sailor
I'm hard to windward and hard a-lee
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
I've newly come upon the shore
And this is what I'm looking for
A jade, a maid, or even a whore
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor

[Spoken]
Well I'll come down and let you in
I'll come down and let you in
I'll come down and let you in
Cried the fair young maiden

[Verse 2]
Well, hurry before I bust the door
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
My arse is tight and my tempers raw
Say Barnaclе Bill the Sailor
I'm so wound up I'm afraid to stop
I'm looking for meat or I'm going to pop
A rag, a bone with a chеrry on top
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor

[Spoken]
Oh your whisker scrape my cheeks
Oh your whisker scrape my cheeks
Oh your whisker scrape my cheeks
Cried the fair young maiden

[Verse 3]
I'm dirty and lousy and full of fleas
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
I'll put my mast in whom I please
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
My flowing whiskers give me class
The sea horses ate them instead of grass
If they hurt your cheeks, they'll tickle your ass
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor

[Spoken]
Tell me that we'll soon be wed
Tell me that we'll soon be wed
Tell me that we'll soon be wed
Cried the fair young maiden

[Verse 4]
You foolish girl, it's nothing but sport
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
I've got me a wife in every port
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
Off I go on another tack
To give some other fair maid a crack
But keep it oiled till I come back
Says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
