This Ship’s Going Down

A gargantuan hole in the bow will,
The ocean to enter, allow.
Oh, but more a sin then letting it in
Us letting our good fortune out.
The nest, to the storm did succumb,
While the crow hid his fear in the rum.
And the mast, it broke and throw out the bloke
And well now he’s surely my chum.

Love letters from under his bed,
Holds the cabin boy over his head
A futile try to keep it dry
Where tears have already wet.
They were penned by a girl in Merak,
And the Javanese vaule their tact.
She’ll conclude he’s horribly rude
‘Cause he’s sure as hell not writing back.

‘Cause, this ship’s going down.
All on account of the weather
Though we’ll drown
There’s no need to frown
‘Cause we’re all going together.
And I won’t say “Woe is me”
As I disappear into the sea.
’cause I’m in good company
As we’re all going together.
I’ve had women of every kind,
But the only one truly was mine
Is the one at home who’ll be
Alone when I am full-up with brine.
For my son, I had always a plan
To raise him as best as I can.
Oh well you can bet my only regret
Is to not see him grow to a man.

‘Cause, this ship’s going down.
All on account of the weather
Though we’ll drown
There’s no need to frown
‘Cause we’re all going together.
And I won’t say “Woe is me”
As I disappear into the sea.
‘Cause I’m in good company
As we’re all going together.
I was sinking down into the brine,
When a curious site caught my eye.
Seaman Shaft had found a raft
And was makin’ a speedy goodbye.
At the risk of sounding absurd,
I have always been good as my word.
So a fishgig I lanced into his eye
And I knocked his ass overboard.

‘Cause, this ship’s going down.
All on account of the weather
Though we’ll drown
There’s no need to frown
‘Cause we’re all going together.
And I won’t say “Woe is me”
as I disappear into the sea.
‘Cause I’m in good company
As we’re all going together.
Oh hell!
’cause you’ll all been so good to me
So we’re all going together.
