An old sailor's song:

drunken sailor - marinero borracho; Irish - irlandés; rover - cazafortunas, vagabundo, pirata; "way hay" - una especie de "la, la, la"; up she rises - se levanta, se sube, se eleva; shave - afeitar; belly - tripa; rusty - oxidado; razor - cuchilla; put him in - metele en; a long boat - bote largo; till - hasta; sober - desembriagado; stick him in - metele en; a barrel - un barril; hosepipe - manguera, caño largo; the captain's daughter - la hija del capitán; that's what we do - eso es lo que hacemos.

According to Wikipedia, Drunken Sailor was a work song often sung when raising a sail or raising the anchor, which is the reference for “Up She Rises” in the song’s chorus. Such songs were the only ones allowed in the Royal Navy. Most often, only two or three verses were sung but verses were often added until the task was completed. The general meaning is one of revenge against the sailor for getting drunk (venganza).
