full lyrics:


oh Dohna, oh Dolly

where giddy ya run

say you're off to the harbor

for ebb and flow fun

there's a ship, set to port

called the Queen's Castaway

and they're wavin' her in

from the deck of the quay


oh salty sea doggies

say prayers as ye land

for a spell spent in Boston

never goes as planned

namaste, Jackie Tar, namaste


Delilah, Delilah!

make ready your bar

for it's early in the morn

but they've sailed from so far

and better the ale they pay for

pours forth from thee

for that coin must be pried

'fore they turn back to sea


oh salty sea doggies

be thrifty and wise

behind smiles of Bodhisattvas

hide piracy eyes

namaste, Jody Tar, namaste


Sid can ya recall

from your seat on that crate

when ya pillaged the world

for some pieces of eight

when ya climbed to the crow's nest

just a gigglin' boy

joinin' in on the chorus

singin' "Land Ahoy!"


don't bother, sea doggies

to boast while ashore

Bodhisattvas well know

all that Moby Dick lore

namaste, Jackie Tar, namaste


oh mariner captain

grant leave as agreed

your men held up their end

and deserve to be freed

by the dawn, they'll be broke

from wild wenches and brew

then they'll stagger aboard

and you'll yet have a crew


oh salty sea doggies

batten hatches down

don't let Boston Bodhisattvas

paint you with the town


oh salty sea doggies

say prayers as ye land

for a spell spent in Boston

never goes as planned

namaste, Jackie Tar, namaste

namaste, Jackie Tar, namaste

namaste, Jackie Tar, namaste
