GUEST,Strudelbag Help: meaning of 'in bed w/ captain's daughter' (76* d) RE: Help: meaning of 'in bed w/ captain's daughte 28 May 04

I first heard the verse "put him into bed with the captain's daughter" in 1966. Back then, it obviously meant "the captain's daughter" and nothing else. It seemed to be the only well-known "bawdy" verse of the song at that time.

I wonder if Jack Tar would have dared to sing such a verse in the middle of voyage?
