Verse:
Once there was a lit-tle girl, who lived next to me,
And she loved a sail-or boy, he was on-ly three.
Now he's on a bat-tle ship, in his sail-or suit,
Just a great big sail-or man, but he's just as cute:
 
Chorus:
Bell Bot-tom Trou-sers, coat of na-vy blue,
She loves her sail-or, and he loves her too.
Bell Bot-tom Trou-sers, coat of na-vy blue,
He'll climb the rig-gin' like his dad-dy used to do.
