Home was the sailor
Six months on the sea.
Swaggered to the barstool
Beside the lady,

"Buy you a drink Ma'am?"
Said the old salt.
"What'll it be-
A salty dog
A sweet daiquiri?"

"Feelin a bit libidinous tar?"
"Aye, aye lady
That I are."

So they departed the smokey saloon,
Walking out,through mist and  fog
While he sang her a tune;
"Honey let me be your salty dog."

I just loved this! Nice work with colloquialisms and puns. "Feelin' a bit libidinous tar?" was my favourite line.

Thanks for your visit.
