Murphy Thinks The Ship Is Sinkin’!
By Clancy O’Lafferty
Murphy was nippin’ the whiskey a bit
On the wide-open sea in an old sailin’ ship
When he saw lotsa water way down in the bilge
Which is normal but Murphy yelled, “Oh, bloody hell!”
He staggered to topside and fell in a raft,
The captain said, “Lad, have gone bloody daft?
Why in that boat is your fancy to sit?
“I’m in ‘er cuth th’ bloody sink is shippin’ you twit!”
