I’m a sailor peg
And I lost my leg

Hanging with hooligans and running from cops.

I remember hearing “I am Shipping Up to Boston” while I was a teen in high school. It was my first introduction to music that was both intense and fun as hell. One thing Dropkick Murphy’s have is an infectious energy that spreads to listeners. Now more than 20+ years later, whenever I hear this song, I start to jump up and down and singing, “I’m a sailor peg, and I lost my leg!”

Lyrics to Shipping up to Boston by Dropkick Murphys

I’m a sailor peg
And I lost my leg
Climbing up the topsails
I lost my leg!
 
I’m shipping up to Boston (whoa)
I’m shipping up to Boston (whoa)
I’m shipping up to Boston (whoa)
I’m shipping off
To find my wooden leg
 
I’m a sailor peg
And I lost my leg
Climbing up the top sails
I lost my leg!
 
I’m shipping up to Boston (whoa)
I’m shipping up to Boston (whoa)
I’m shipping up to Boston (whoa)
I’m shipping off
To find my wooden leg
