My Second Trip - Poem by Bob Gibson

My second trip was deep sea, foreign places I did roam
The country was Penang! it was many miles from home
I went out with the sailors, and took to drinking rum
As the evening was progressing, I was having fun

A girl came up to me, and winked as she sat down
I bought her a drink, and started to think! she knows I'm from out of town
We chatted on, the lights were low, it was then, that she said
Your a good looking sailor! are you gonna take me to bed?

I stumbled off my chair, my mates they gave a cheer
I said you jealous sods! its me she's calling dear!
We went up to her room, how I cannot say!
I fell fast asleep, before she had her wicked way

I woke up in the morning! OH! my aching head
I found that I was lying, naked on her bed
I looked around for my trousers, but all that I could find
Was a dress and a razor, that she'd left behind

She had taken everything I came with! I was in a mess
So I took to the razor and put on the dress!
I met a sailor in the bar, he was really drunk
I said come here big boy! your my kind of hunk!

I led him to the bedroom, where he fell fast asleep
I put on his clothes i felt awfully cheap!
I left the dress and razor, and bid my sailor adieu
then I joined my ship again an met up with the crew
