Ho hee ho hee
You're just as drunk as me
Ho hee ho hee
Headin' for the deep blue sea

I went down to the corner
Just for to meet my pal
I found him talking on the sidewalk
Talking to my gal
I went back to the bar room
To get another drink of gin
But the first thing I knew I was reeling
Rocking drunk again

A-ho hee ho hee
You're just as drunk as me
A-ho hee ho hee
Headin' for the deep blue sea

I kept on drinking liquor
To way out in the night
My pal came into the bar room
And we had an awful fight
I reached down for my razor
And then we messed around
But when I drew my pistol
I quickly smoked him down

Hey hee hey hee
You're just as drunk as me
Hey hee hey hee
Headin' for the deep blue sea

So I headed on back to the bar room
Stopping in at the bar
And there I met a policeman
Sitting in a motor car
We kept drinking lots of liquor
That flat-footed cop and I
I thought he would never leave me
I knew that he had to die

And I laid my head on the bar room floor
Never get drunk any more
I pawned my watch, my golden chain
I pawned my baby's diamond ring

Hey hee hey hee
You're just as drunk as me
A-hey hee hey hee
Headin' for the deep blue sea

He-he-hey hee hey hee
You're just as drunk as me
A-hey hee hey hee
Headin' for the deep blue sea
