Here are a few suggestions: Feed him and give him lots of money. Love him and take care of him. Make sure he has lots of nice big yachts to play with. Buy him a distillery and brewery. Dont abuse him cause he's suffered enough of that from experts...OK?

Related song, learned long ago when I used to climb mountains:

WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE DRUNKEN CLIMBER?

What shall we do with the drunken climber? (3X) Ear-Lye in the mornin'

Wrap his crampons in his air mattress (3X) Ear-Lye etc.

Feed him prunes on a five-day backpack (3X) Ear-Lye etc.

Give him slack when he asks for tension (3X) Ear-Lye etc.

And I think there are more.

You could, like, bum a few smokes off him, eh? You could maybe bum a few drinks off him too. We don't get a lot of real sailors in Blind River, but we got fishermen. Fishing is cool cos you get to sit in a boat all day and drink, and your old lady can't bug you. That's if you got an old lady. Me, I'm single cos it wouldn't be fair to the babes in thsi town if I was to marry, and besides, I'm holdin' out for Shania Twain or somebody like that, eh? Although I ain't no perfectionist, but, like, why settle for a skank, eh?
