Like ships in a squall we rise and we fall<br />
We're plotting our course through the waves<br />
Some masts are tall with sails so strong<br />
Others are tossed in the gale<br />
We try to stay dry with salt in our eyes<br />
No moment to rest or complain<br />
The moon isn't far a clear sky and stars<br />
Red sky at morn on your tail<br />
<br />
I'm not going to stand on the end of the pier<br />
I'm not going to let you go down with the ship<br />
Raise up your anchor it's time to set sail<br />
And I'm not going to let you go down<br />
<br />
Like ships we were made to dance o'er our graves<br />
One false move and we could be thrown<br />
Buried alive before our due time<br />
To rest at sixty below<br />
So jibe while you can if there's danger ahead<br />
Stay on your course if you will<br />
I'll throw you a line as waves start to rise<br />
And bail as your ship starts to fill
