  1. Whae, hey, we are off tomorrow (solo)
    Whae, hey, we are off tomorrow (chorus)
    Off tomorrow at the break of day (solo)
    Walk along, you Saucy Anna (chorus)
  2. We’ll fly that flag and sail tomorrow
    God Bless our Lady Queen.
  3. We’ll fly that flag and sail tomorrow
    Tomorrow is our jubilee day.
  4. I wish I was in old Mobile Bay
    I know, boys, just how I’d feel.
  5. To just sit on my Anna’s knee
    I know she would say I was making free.
  6. Oh stay at home, Oh stay with me
    Oh stay at home, don’t go to se-ea.
  7. A dollar a day is a sailor’s pay
    Easy come, easy go away
  8. I thought I heard our Old Man say
    We’re outward bound for Mobile Bay
  9. Way hey we are off tomorrow
    Off tomorrow at the break of day
