There are clean lyrics to 'Blow the Man Down,' right? Somewhere?

I certainly hope so, since I recommended the song to someone doing a pirate presentation ot a class of first graders. She wanted to do a song they could sing along with - I figured that was better than 'Drunken Sailor.'

All depends on what you mean by "clean". The version we do is as close as we could find to "original" lyrics. No innuendo, no perversion. Some of the language isn't exactly pristine (definitely NOT for first graders), but that's sailors for you. The song is really about the hell of getting conned into going out to sea.
