I've 'collected' them in the traditional way - line by line from a Fiherman's Friends YouTube clip.

Here is my transcript:

All The Night Long

With musket in one hand and balls in the other
All the night long laddies, all the night long
We’ll fight for good Bessy, we’ll follow no other
All the night long laddies, all the night long

Chorus
Raise up your tankards and join in me toast
Soon we will drink it all down
Drink to the pleasure we all love the most
Then we will have another round

We’ll drink to our skipper that won’t let us slumber
All the night long laddies, all the night long
He’ll repel the boarders with a voice just like thunder
All the night long laddies, all the night long

We’ll drink to our shipmates for they have no rival
All the night long laddies, all the night long
As sure as the sky’s blue they’re drunk on arrival
All the night long laddies, all the night long

We’ll drink to our ladies so fair and so fine
All the night long laddies, all the night long
They steal all our money and drink all our wine
All the night long laddies, all the night long

We’ll drink to old England that country so dear
All the night long laddies, all the night long
She gave us the barley so we could brew beer
All the night long laddies, all the night long
All the night long laddies, all the night long
All the night long laddies, all the night long



From Fisherman’s Friends, Proper Job. Credit unknown.

It would be great if someone could let me know the author so I can give credit.

I had posted this as a lyric request a few days ago, but have managed to jot down the words from a YouTube clip of Fisherman's Friends. I have the album also.
Here is my transcript:

All The Night Long

With musket in one hand and balls in the other
All the night long laddies, all the night long
We’ll fight for good Bessy, we’ll follow no other
All the night long laddies, all the night long

Raise up your tankards and join in me toast
Soon we will drink it all down
Drink to the pleasure we all love the most
Then we will have another round

We’ll drink to our skipper that won’t let us slumber
All the night long laddies, all the night long
He’ll repel the boarders with a voice just like thunder
All the night long laddies, all the night long

We’ll drink to our shipmates for they have no rival
All the night long laddies, all the night long
As sure as the sky’s blue they’re drunk on arrival
All the night long laddies, all the night long

We’ll drink to our ladies so fair and so fine
All the night long laddies, all the night long

All the night long laddies, all the night long

Hi, John - We now ask people to post lyrics in request threads, not to start a new thread to answer a request. I combined the two threads.
