Or another version is;

Indicate the way to my abode, I'm tired and I wish to seek repose. I had a little drink about an hour ago and it's gone right to the space that keeps me ears apart, No matter where I perambulate, on land or sea or phospherating foam. You will always hear me singing this refrain, Indicate the way to my abode(gerroff me barra') Indicate the way to my abode.

Cheers!

The way we sang it as kids was:

I had a little hour about a drink ago
And it head right to my went

Wherever I may roam, over land or sea or foam
You will always hear me sing this song
Way me the show to go home

Direct me to my abode
I'm fatigued and I wish to retire
I took a little sustenance sixty minutes ago
And it's gone right to my cranium
No matter where I perambulate
On terra-firma, aqua-marina or effervescent liquid
You will always hear me crooning this melody
Direct me to my abode

Explicate whither my demesne;
From lassitude I long to recline;
Imbibed a wee libation 'bout a bell or two back,

Notwithstanding wheresoe'er I peregrinate,
O'er humus, deeps or bubbles,
This incantation will remain eternally audibly emanating from my throat:
Delineate to me the route to my bed.

(I just made that one up; doubt it's ever been sung, and I'm not drunk so it won't start now.

How my Dad used to sing it on the Trawlers in the '60s.

Direct me the way to my abode
I'm fatigued and I wish to retire
I partook in alcholic sixty minutes ago
And it's gone right to my cranium
No matter where I perambulate
Over land or sea, or atmospheric vapour
You can always hear me voicing this melodium
Direct me the way to my abode

Anothe one:

Indicate the way to my abode,
I'm fatigued and I wish to repose,
I had a small libation sixty minutes ago,
And it went right to my cerebral cortex.
No matter where I perambulate
Over land or sea or atmospheric concentrate,
You will always hear me intoning this ditty:
Indicate the way to my abode.

We (Coarse, Rough & Direct) sing it straight for the first verse (once solo, once harmony), "Indicate" for the second verse (once solo, once harmony) and straight for the last verse (once harmony).

Indicate the route to my abode
I'm fatigued and I wish to retire
I partook of a libation sixty minutes previously
It proceeded to my cerebellum cranium
Regardless of whither I perambulate
Over terra firma, H2O or aqua-effervescence
You may constantly audit me
Crooning out this melody
Indicate the route to my abode

The definitive version is:

Indicate the route to my abode,
I'm fatigued and I wish to retire,
I had an alcoholic beverage sixty minutes ago,
and it's gone straight to my cranium.
No matter where I may perambulate,
Over land or sea or effervescent liquid,
You can always hear me chanting this lament,
Indicate the route to my abode.

MY definitive version is:

Indicate the route to my abode,
I am fatigued and desire to retire.
I imbibed a little liquor sixty minutes ago
And it interfered with my cerebral function.
Notwithstanding whither I perambulate;
In lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere or stratosphere,
You'll ever detect me rendering this melody;
Indicate the route to my abode.

direct me to my abode
I'm fatigued and I want to retire
I imbibed a bit 60 minutes ago
which ignited a cranial pyre
In any direction I wander
solid, liquid, or gas state substrate
My rendition of this melody forever remains
Program my GPS for my abode.

My "W C Fields version" goes like this:

"Indicate the direction of my residence;
I'm fatigued and I desire to retire.
I imbibed a small quantity approximately 60 minutes ago
And it traveled directly to my cerebellum.
Regardless where I may perambulate
On terra firma or the ocean or effervescence,
You will ever perceive me incanting this melody:
'Indicate the direction of my residence.'"

I had an alcoholic beverage sixty minutes ago

Everywhere that I may perambulate
On land or sea or atmospheric vapor
I am always audibly singing this melody
Show me the way to go home
