Lyrics:

Now 'twas twenty five or thirty years sing Jack first saw the light.
He came into this world of woe one dark and stormy night.
He was born on board his father's ship as she was lying to,
'Bout twenty five or thirty miles southeast of Baccallieu.

Oh, Jack was every inch a sailor,
Five and twenty years a whaler,
Jack was every inch a sailor,
He was born upon the bright blue sea.

When Jack grew up to be a man he went to Labrador,
He fished in Indian Harbour where his father fished before.
On his returning in the fog, he met a heavy gale,
And Jack was swept into the sea and swallowed by a whale.

Oh, Jack was every inch a sailor,
Five and twenty years a whaler,
Jack was every inch a sailor,
He was born upon the bright blue sea.

The whale went straight for Baffin's Bay, 'bout ninety knots an hour,
And every time he'd blow a spray he'd send it in a shower.
"Oh now," says Jack unto himself, "I must see what he's about."
He caught the whale by the tail and turned him inside out. 

Oh, Jack was every inch a sailor,
Five and twenty years a whaler,
Jack was every inch a sailor,
He was born upon the bright blue sea.
