Tanqueray Martinis, Oh (Paul Campbell and Jim Houlihan) We set out from Stamford town With a fleet of stinkpots all around When from up aloft a cry came down: "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" It's good for captain and for crew It's the only drink you can look right through, And there's really nothing else will do --- "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" cho: So haul the sheets back with one hand, Set your drink down, if you can And never sail out of sight of land. "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" At Greenwich harbor we put in For we were getting short of gin To continue on would have been a sin "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" Our skipper's lying on the floor He was selected to go for more But he broke his leg tryin' to get on shore. "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" cho: Nine parts of gin and one vermouth It's the sailors friend, ain't that the truth From Sheepshead Bay to the Bay of Booth "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" Southhampton girls have figures fine Rigged loose in front and taut behind With packing slips from Calvin Klein "Tanqueray Martinis, Oh!" cho: Copyright Campbell and Houlihan Sung by the Boarding Party RG
