ALL FOR ME GROG
Traditional

Chorus:
And it's all for me grog me jolly, jolly grog
All for my beer and tobacco
F
or, I spent all me tin on lassies drinkin' gin

Across the Western Ocean I must wander

Where are me boots, me noggin', noggin' boots
They're all gone for beer and tobacco

For the heels they are worn out and the toes are kicked about
And the soles are lookin' out for better weather

Chorus:

Where is me shirt, me noggin', noggin' shirt
It's all gone for beer and tobacco

For the collar is all worn and the sleeves they are all torn

And the tail is lookin' out for better weather


Chorus:

I'm sick in the head and I haven't been to bed
Since first I came ashore from me slumber

For I spent all me dough on the lassies donít you know

Across the western Ocean I must wander

Other optional verses:

Where is me wife, me noggin', noggin' wife
She's all gone for beer and tobacco

For her front it is worn out and her tail is kicked about

And Iím sure she's lookin' out for better weather

Where is me bed, me noggin', noggin' bed

It's all gone for beer and tobacco

For the springs they are worn out and the pillows are kicked about

And the sheets are lookin' out for better weather

Footnote:  A rollicking song which enlivened many a folk night during the revival.  Grog was a mixture of rum and water.  It was served as a ration in the United States Navy until 1 September 1862, and in the English Royal Navy until 1970.
