We've sailed to every shore

from here to Singapore

But we've never, never

never seen a mermaid

We've sailed the Seven Seas

Seen a million different shes

But we've never, never

never seen a mermaid

It's a lie

It's a lie

Ship ahoy, ship ahey

ship ahigh

We dream while we're asleep

that we're 80 fathoms deep

But we've never, never

never seen a mermaid

A sailor can't be true

to any one gal

He's a cheatin'

son of the sea

A sailor can't be true

to any one gal

A sailor man

must have variety

[n every port you leave

behind a heartache inside

And always give 'em somethin'

to remember you by

But I'm a man that

could be true to one gal

If she's

the right gal for me

It's a lie

It's a lie

Ship ahoy, ship ahey

ship ahigh

We've sailed to Timbuktu

Valparaiso and Peru

But we've never, never

never seen a mermaid

I've been a sea dog

since I was in me prime.

- A seafaring man since B.C.

- B.C.?

Yeah, B.C. Before

''Come up and see me sometime.''

It's a lie

It's a lie

Ship ahoy, ship ahey

ship ahigh

We dream while we're asleep

that we're 80 fathoms deep

But we've never, never

- Come on, Doris! You're in the next hand.

Oh, here's a cocktail we've

never tried. A Yellow Parrot.

Ship ahoy, ship ahey

ship ahigh Who wants one?

We dream while we're asleep that we're

80 fathoms deep Hmm. A Yellow Parrot.

But we've never, never

never seen a mermaid

A Yellow Parrot.

Let's see.

Gin, orangejuice,

cointreau, cherries.

Hmm. Gin.

Well, I don't think I'll

trouble with the orange juice.

There's very little to be

gained from orange juice.

It says brandy here.

This is confusing.

Well... brandy.

What on Earth are you cooking? Ha-ha!

It's too weak.

Aaah!

Ohhhhhhh.

Nights in Havana

are warm and delicious

They make trusting hearts

a bit too ambitious

The sway of the palms

makes a girl so pernicious

A tra-la-la

la-la-la-la-la

The men are all sheiks

and they use a new system

So, girlies, be careful

and learn to resist 'em

They'll fill you with bull

and after you've kissed 'em

They'll leave you flat on the

spot Ah-ha-ha, but for what

Ahh, for tra-la-la

la-la-la-la-la, ohh

If some caballero

takes off his sombrero

You better take care-o

watch out and beware-o

For it's just

a new Spanish custom

If some sweet bambino

says you are his queen-o

Then in some casino

he fills you with vino

Oh, it's just

a new Spanish custom

If he starts acting

too haughty-o

Ah,just kick him

right in the patio

If he starts to pet-o

I warn you no let-o

If he sings ''I love you''

he's singing falsetto

For it's just

a new Spanish custom

If you're so interested

in that sailor,

why don't you have him up here

and take him apart? What sailor?

Oh, not the one

you stare at, of course.

I do not stare at him.

I've hardly noticed him.

Then, uh, why have you been

picking on him the whole voyage?

Come along, Doris. I've cut

for you, and we're partners.

- Oh, Michael, would you mind getting me a highball?

- Oh, certainly.

Isn't he gorgeous?

In fact, they're both gorgeous. Yeah.

I don't wonder you have so much

trouble choosing between them.

What are you butting into

this for? Me butting in?

Hmph! I like that. I

found her first, didn't I?

Didn't she ask me to get her this drink?

You don't do as well with women as I do.

You've always got your cut, haven't

you? I proposed to her first.

You're making a big mistake. Lay off.

We three could be

very happy together.

I wish you'd hurry up and take.

I'm simply dithering with envy.

But why, darling? Because I'm gonna

take the one that's left, that's why.
