I thought I heard the captain say
Pay me my money down
Tomorrow is our sailing day
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Soon as that boat cleared the bar
Pay me my money down
He knocked me down with a spar
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Well if I'd been a rich man's son
Pay me my money down
I'd sit on the river and watch 'er run
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Well I wish I was Mr. Gates
Pay me my money down
They'd haul my my money in, in crates
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Well forty days and nights at sea
Pay me my money down
Captain worked every last dollar out of me
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down
