WAmhen my grandpa was a boy, he wGent down to the general store SAmaw a picture book of whales,G shooting their spouts and flashing theAmir tails TAmhen he got a sailor's dream about crGuisin' around on the salty sea JAmoined up with a fishin' crew Gto go out and get him a whale or tAmwo TeAmll me what kind of men are these who sail upon the salty seas G UpAm in the riggin' in the afternoon, swabbin' the decks aGnd sharpAmening harpoons

Chorus

HAmooray and up she rises HGooray and up she rises HAmooray and up she rises EGarly in the morning Am There's lots of whales in the deep blue sea and we kill them for the industry We drag'em along side and cut'em in two and melt'em down and sell it to you There hardly is a sailor alive who can keep the tears from his eyes As he remembers the good old days, when there were no whales to save Now we can thank the companies for scouring the deep blue seas Looking for ivory and perfume and oil to light your living room

Chorus

Shanghaied by the light of the moon, put up in Boston in the middle of June After six months I left the sea, nothing but death and misery Set out on a 3 year cruise, a union ship and a union crew After six months you begin to see, whaling's not what it used to be A modern ship and a modern crew with sonar scopes and exploding harpoons A mechanincal boat made out of steel and a floating machine gun to kill the whale

Chorus

Repeat first verse
