The Octopus

Having just finished me tour of duty...
Been at sea for over a year...
I needed a pint of whiskey...
And a romp or two with me dear...

She saw me enter the parlor...
I fell in love with her on first sight...
She dragged me upstairs to her bedroom...
To love me long into the dark night...

She swallowed me up like an octopus...
Only to catch a case of the crabs...
It served me right for spending me money...
Putting my body and soul up for grabs...

One would think I’d learn me the lesson...
To keep my bailiwick ever so dry...
But I’m just a horny old sailer...
Looking for love at the wink of an eye...
