    Lyrics

    We come on the sloop John B
    My grandfather and me
    Around Nassau town we did roam
    Drinking all night
    Got into a fight
    Well I feel so broke up, I want to go home

    So hoist up the John B's sail
    See how the mainsail sets
    Call for the Captain ashore - let me go home
    Let me go home.
    I wanna go home, yeah yeah
    Well I feel so broke up - I wanna go home

    The first mate he got drunk
    Broke in the Cap'n's trunk
    The constable had to come and take him away
    Sheriff John Stone
    Why don't you leave me alone? yeah yeah
    Well I feel so broke up, I wanna go home

    So hoist up the John B's sail
    See how the mainsail sets
    Call for the Captain ashore Let me go home, let me go home

    (a capella)
    I wanna go home, let me go home
    (Why don't you let me go)
    Hoist up the John B's sail (Hoist up the John B)
    I feel so broke up
    I wanna go home.

    The poor cook he caught the fits
    And threw away all my grits
    And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
    Let me go home
    Why don't they let me go home?
    This is the worst trip
    I've ever been on

    So hoist up the John B's sail
    See how the mainsail sets
    Call for the Captain ashore - let me go home
    Let me go home.
    I wanna go home - let me go home
    Why don't you let me go home?
    (fade out)
