Crazy Captain Gunboat Willie
Growled out his commands
And all the able seamen
Clicked their heels and swore

They would protect the noble ship
In peace-time and in war
And they danced a jig until the dawn
Sang a loyal sailors song

Drank a pot of steaming rum
Did all the things that loyal sailors do
Captain Bill expressed great glee
All the things that he had planned

Were made to go his way
All the fares he had collected and salted away
Made his lips turn in a smile
Just then Luke the rat from down below

Called to Gunboat Bill
He said
Listen to those madmen wail
They've been at sea for ninety days

Without the sight of land
No it doesn't look so good to me
No it doesn't look so good at all
The captain pondered what the rat had said

Until he could think of nothing more
Then he threw his crew into the foaming sea
At least a thousand miles from shore
And he danced a jig until the dawn

Sang a loyal captain's song
Drank a pot of steaming rum
Did all the things that loyal captains do
The rat looked hard at Gunboat Bill

And he said in a serious style
As he leapt into the water
Don't believe, no don't believe
Don't believe everything that you hear
