Powder Monkey

Powder Monkey, that funky Monkey
Powder Monkey junkie, that gunner flunky

Got this mate who’s on our crew
He’s got a vital job to do
He gets the powder for our guns
For shooting Frenchy, so much fun
Run, Monkey run, we need some fast.

Good shot men, you got their mast!
Powder Monkey’s job is not safe
His woolen pants, they often chafe.
He sleeps in a hammock deep under deck.

And works quite hard for his paycheck.
I’m Powder Monkey and I run well
I got a ship in the harbor
That’s where I dwell

A gunner’s mate got Monkey’s curse.
While Monkey worked, he stole his purse.
Monkey’s told him he’d see him dead.
A powder bomb blew off gunner’s head.

Our Cap’n ordered Monkey striped on deck
The first mate flogged, his back was wrecked.
When deed was done, Monkeys blood did run
Doc reached in the locker, grabbed jug o’rum

He poured it on the Monkey, right on to the cuts
To wash out bloody wounds, then he sewed them up.
He offered him a sip, the monkey bit his lip
It did begin, the rum kicked in and now he’s in his slip

Powder Monkey, that funky Monkey

Step up to the bar, put the beer down
take a big gulp and swish it around
Take a sip, you can do it, you get right to it
We had a case in the place and we went right through it

You got a dark brown ale, thinking you’re cool
I’ll take your place at the bar, I smack you off your stool
I’ll down a large grog in a single gulp
And if you got beef you’ll get beat to a pulp

Monkey likes pillagin’ and sneekin’ and lootin’
Little island girls, we’re all foolin
The song and dance keeping you in a trance
If you wake up early, I’ll stab you in your pants

I drink it, I think it, I see it, I be it
Powder Monkey loves rum but I won’t give it
We got the bottle, who needs a cup
Come on everybody, drink it up!
