Edited lyrics:

The skipper's in the wardroom drinking gin
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Well I don't mind knocking but I ain't going in
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Jimmy's laughing like a drain
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Been looking at me comic cuts again
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft

Chicken on a raft on a Monday morning
Oh what a terrible sight to see
Dabtoes for'd and the dustmen aft
Sitting there picking at a chicken on a raft

Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Hey-oh, chicken on a raft
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Hey-oh, chicken on a raft

Now get me the middle and the forenoon too
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Now I'm pulling in a whaling crew
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Seagulls wheeling overhead
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
I ought to be home in me feather bed
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft

Chicken on a raft on a Monday morning
Oh what a terrible sight to see
Dabtoes for'd and the dustmen aft
Sitting there picking at a chicken on a raft

Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Hey-oh, chicken on a raft
Hi-oh, chicken on a raft
Hey-oh, chicken on a raft
