The lyrics tell the story of a man regretting squandering all his money on women and drink, as he has to go back out to see to earn some more.

 
Em 
When I first landed in  
D 
Liverpool I  
C 
went out  
D 
on a  
Em 
spree
 
My money alas I  
G 
spent it fast, got  
Em 
drunk as  
D 
drunk could  
Em 
be.
 
And when my money  
G 
was all gone, ’twas  
Em 
then I  
D 
looked for  
Em 
more
 
Oh a man must be blind to  
D 
make up his mind to  
C 
go to  
D 
sea once  
Em 
more.
Chorus
 
Once  
G 
more Boys, once  
D 
more,
 
Em 
Go to sea once  
D 
more
 
A  
Em 
man must be blind to  
D 
make up his mind
 
To  
Em 
go to  
D 
sea once  
Em 
more.

I spent the night with Angeline, got drunk and rolled out of her bed
Me watch was new and me money too, In the morning with them she had fled.
And as I walked the streets about you’d hear behind each door
“There goes Jack Spratt the poor sailor lad, he must go to sea once more.”

Chorus

And as I walked the streets about I met with me old Captain Brown
I asked him for to take me on and he looked at me with a frown.
He said: “Last time you were fed up with me and mutineer’d by the score
But I’ll give you a chance and hand you your advance and I’ll send you to sea once more.”

Chorus

He shipped me on board a whaling ship that was bound for the Arctic Sea
Where the cold winds blow through the frost and snow and Jamaica rum would freeze.
Oh it was hardly to bear, I’d no hard weather gear for I’d spent all me money ashore
‘Twas then that I wished I was safely back home and would go to sea no more.

Chorus

So come all you big sea-faring men who listen to me song
When you come back from a cold, lonesome trip make sure you won’t go wrong.
Take my advice and drink no strong liquor, beware of women and song
Get married instead and spend all night in bed and go to sea no more.
