    ARRR! Breathe a word against this 'un and you's shark bait, mateys!

    Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
    Drink and the devil had done for the rest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike
    The bosun brained with a marlinspike
    And cookey's throat was marked belike
    It had been gripped by fingers ten;
    And there they lay, all good dead men
    Like break o'day in a boozing ken
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

    Fifteen men of the whole ship's list
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist!
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    The skipper lay with his nob in gore
    Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore
    And the scullion he was stabbed times four
    And there they lay, and the soggy skies
    Dripped down in up-staring eyes
    In murk sunset and foul sunrise
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

    Fifteen men of 'em stiff and stark
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    Ten of the crew had the murder mark!
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
    Or a yawing hole in a battered head
    And the scuppers' glut with a rotting red
    And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes
    Looking up at paradise
    All souls bound just contrariwise
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

    Fifteen men of 'em good and true
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    Ev'ry man jack could ha' sailed with Old Pew,
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    There was chest on chest of Spanish gold
    With a ton of plate in the middle hold
    And the cabins riot of stuff untold,
    And they lay there that took the plum
    With sightless glare and their lips struck dumb
    While we shared all by the rule of thumb,
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

    More was seen through a sternlight screen...
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
    Chartings undoubt where a woman had been
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    'Twas a flimsy shift on a bunker cot
    With a dirk slit sheer through the bosom spot
    And the lace stiff dry in a purplish blot
    Oh was she wench or some shudderin' maid
    That dared the knife and took the blade
    By God! she had stuff for a plucky jade
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

    Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
    Drink and the devil had done for the rest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    We wrapped 'em all in a mains'l tight
    With twice ten turns of a hawser's bight
    And we heaved 'em over and out of sight,
    With a Yo-Heave-Ho! and a fare-you-well
    And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell
    Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell,
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
    Look into my avatar. Look deep into my avatar...

    lol let the college student take care of this question
    all of these are classics in their own right

    finnegan's wake -- dropkick murphys
    colt 45 -- afroman
    gin and juice -- sublime
    tessie -- dropkick murphys ---they just have really good songs!
    drinkin' -- reel big fish
    drinking for 11 -- mad caddies
    anything by girl talk -- not about drinking but great to drink to

    The chorus includes poignant lyrics such as "With the power of Ale, they cannot fail!"

    This song certainly describes what many of my drinking experiences are like.

    [youtube="admx0WApzbE"]Old Black Rum - Great Big Sea[/youtube]

    I drank sixteen doubles for the price of one
    Trying to find the courage to talk to one
    I asked her for a dance
    Not a second glance
    My night had just begun

    Well I drink to the father and the holy ghost
    I'm kneeling at the altar of my nightly post
    So I'll raise a glass, not the first nor last
    Come join me in this toast

    Because the old black rum's got a hold on me
    Like a dog wrapped round my leg
    And the old black rum's got a hold on me
    Will I live for another day?
    Hey, Will I live for another day?

    Well the queen of George street just went walking on by
    Walking on by with some guy who don't care
    That she stood in line
    Since half past nine
    And spent three hours on her hair (On her hair!)

    Well her friend is looking at me with an evil grin
    I think the bloody racket might soon begin
    I must have said some thing
    To the George street queen
    The boys are joining in!

    Because the old black rum's got a hold on me
    Like a dog wrapped round my leg
    And the old black rum's got a hold on me
    Will I live for another day?
    Hey, Will I live for another day?

    So I drank all of my money
    And I slept out in the rain
    Everyday is different but the nights they're all the same
    You never see the sun on the old black rum
    But I know I'm gonna do it again!

    Because the old black rum's got a hold on me
    Like a dog wrapped round my leg
    And the old black rum's got a hold on me
    Will I live for another day?
    Hey, Will I live for another day?
