выше нос!

Johnny I hardly knew Ya

       На пиратский манер:



We boarded the ship most eagerly – Hurroo, Hurroo
Drinking and carousing merrily – Hurroo, Hurroo
For we all knew where the ship had been, sailing for gold and back again.
We were more like a kennel of hounds than men – Johnny I hardly knew ya

When it rained on our first night at sea – Hurroo, Hurroo
Blacking out the kings navy – Hurroo, Hurroo
Yonder vessel the boatswain cried, our galleon hitting their ship broadside
And our thirst for blood did coincide – Johnny I hardly knew ya

      R:
       With yer guns and rum, and rum and guns – Hurroo, Hurroo
       With yer guns and rum, and rum and guns – Hurroo, Hurroo
       With yer guns and rum, and rum and guns the enemy nearly slew ya,
       Oh Johnny boy you'll be destroyed, Johnny I hardly knew ya

His efforts they were all for naught – Harroo, Harroo
They took his arm with a cannon shot – Harroo, Harroo
A stab in the eye, a slice in the gut, and ended it all with a kick in the butt
They let Johnny know just what was what – Johnny I hardly knew ya
      R.
When we returned to our port city – Harroo, Harroo
Twenty sea rogues in absentee – Harroo, Harroo
Then on the road in sweet Athy, a stick in the hand, a drop in the eye
A doleful damsel I heard cry – Johnny I hardly knew ya
      R.
Where are the legs with which you run – Harroo, Harroo
The enemy came and left me none – Harroo, Harroo
Where are the legs with which you run, when first you went to carry a gun
Oh Johnny your dancing days are done, and Johnny I hardly knew ya
