But the love bug bit him And he lost his stuff Now he's singin' love songs In the pale moonlight Charlie was a sailor Who'd rather love than fight Charlie was a sailor He said, "I'll be true" But he said the same thing To each girl he knew Charlie was a sailor When his ship came in Sixty girls were waiting Each had a rollong pin Charlie was a sailor On a south sea isle Cannibals were cookin' Charlie up in style They gave him a last wish Charlie said, "I hope, Since I'm in hot water, I'd like a piece of soap" Now he's singin' love songs In the pale moonlight Charlie was a sailor Who'd rather love than fight Charlie was a sailor He said, "I'll be true" But he said the same thing To each girl he knew (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2008)
