Shanty for the Sea


This shanty for the sea
I bellow for thee

Starboard bow
there be a sea cow
sails up now

waves crash
winds thrash

Ocean life
erases all strife

the blue sky
ceases any wish to die

along the deck
the ship like a speck
continues its trek

starboard bow
there be a sea cow
sails up now

This shanty for the sea
I bellow for thee

In jubilation and praise
among the suns haze

We men of the great blue
feeling anew

This shanty for the sea
we sing for thee

starboard bow
there be a sea cow
sails up now
