Pay Me My Money Down

 

I thought I heard the captain say,

“Pay me my money down,

Tomorrow is our sailing day,

Pay me my money down.”

 

Refrain:   Pay me, oh, pay me,

                Pay me my money down,

                Pay me or go to jail,

                Pay me my money down.

 

As soon as the boat was clear of the bar,

“Pay me my money down,”

He knocked me with end of a spar,

“Pay me my money down.”

 

Well, I wish I was Mr. Steven’s son,

“Pay me my money down,”

Sit on the bank and watch the work done,

“Pay me my money down.”
