lyrics

rig it bell boy!
(as long as the ship is cracking)

dig it bell boy!
(as long as it’s cracking it holds)

ring it loud bell boy!
(her ivory legs weigh heavy)

bang it bell boy!
(as long as it’s heavy it’s real)

~
but she ain’t nothing but a sailor’s mouth
a merry miss captain and her heart washed out
~

as soon as I hit land
(my old mind shakes to think)

as soon as I hit land
(who again was moby dick?)

as soon as I hit land
(I’ll suck scars until they’re wound)

as soon as I hit land
(am I scared, or am I proud?)
