Lyrics for:
All for Me Grog

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Chorus:
And, it's all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog,
It's all for me beer and tobacco,
Well I spent all me tin with the lassies drinking gin.
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

I'm sick in the head and I haven't been to bed,
Since first I came ashore with me plunder,
I've seen centipedes and snakes and me head is full of aches,
And I have to take a path for way out yonder.

Chorus

Where are me boots, me noggin', noggin' boots?
They're all sold for beer and tobacco,
For the heels they were worn out and the toes were kicked about,
And the soles were looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me shirt, me noggin', noggin' shirt?
It's all sold for beer and tobacco,
For the collar was all worn, and the sleeves they were all torn,
And the tail was looking out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me wife, me noggin', noggin' wife,
She's all sold for beer and tobacco,
You see her front it was worn out and her tail got kicked about,
And I'm sure she's lookin' out for better weather.

Chorus

Where is me bed, me noggin', noggin' bed,
It's all sold for beer and tobacco,
You see I sold it to the girls until the springs were all in twirls,
And the sheets they're lookin' out for better weather.

Chorus

Alternative versions of verses 2 and 3:

Where are me boots, me noggin', noggin' boots,
They're all sold for beer and tobacco,
See the soles they were thin and the uppers were lettin' in,
And the heels were lookin' out for better weather.

Where is me shirt, me noggin', noggin' shirt,
It's all sold for beer and tobacco,
You see the sleeves were all worn out and the collar been turned about,
And the tail was lookin' out for better weather.
