We come on the sloop John B
My grandfather and me
'Round Nassau town we did roam
Drinking all night, we got into a fight
I feel so breakup, I want to go home

So hoist up the John B sails
See how the mains'l's set
Send for the captain ashore
Let me go home
Let me go home (let me go home)
Let me go home (let me go home)
I feel so breakup
I want to go home

The first mate he got drunk
Broke up the people's trunk
Constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff Johnstone, please let me alone
I fell so breakup, I want to go home

So hoist up the John B sails
See how the mains'l's set
Send for the captain ashore
Let me go home
Let me go home (let me go home)
Let me go home (let me go home)
I feel so breakup
I want to go home

Let me go home (let me go home)
Let me go home (let me go home)
I feel so breakup
I want to go home
