The Whale

We sailed from port one morning when the weather it was fair
A gentle breeze it blew then and no one gave a care
They sang and danced and laughed that night and opened up the keg
We’re out to catch the whale that took the Captains leg di di di di didi di

The Captain said a piece of gold fer he who sees me whale
So bend yer backs and row me lads I know that you won’t fail
And bend yer backs and row me lads and take me to me whale
Tonight we’ll sing and dance and tomorrow light we’ll sail
We’ll sail into the harbour no prouder men they’ll be
As we show them all we captured the monster from the sea di di di di didi di

They saw the whale one morning when the weather it was fair
The men were all white as ghosts but the Captain didn’t care
I’ll take the whale myself he said the weak can stay behind
The strong can share my glory and tonight they’ll share my wine di di di di didi di

The whale it came so close it was bigger than the sky
They lowered down the long boats and the Captain gave a cry
So bend yer backs and row me lads and take me to my whale
Tonight we’ll sing and dance and tomorrows light we’ll sail
We’ll sail into the harbour no prouder men there’ll be
As we show them all we captured the monster from the sea di di di di didi di

The whale it came so close it almost tipped the boat
The Captain raised his spear and rammed it down its throat
The whale it gave a mournful cry and lifted its great tail
And brought it down a crashing hit their boat worse than a gale di di di di didi di

A hundred years have past since the Captain and his men
Went below to spend their days in Davey Jones’ Den
The whale it goes on living but inside it bears a scar
And if yer ever near that place a voice calls from afar di di di di didi di

So bend yer backs and row me lads and take me to me whale
Tonight we’ll sing and dance at tomorrows light we’ll sail
We’ll sail into the harbour no prouder men there’ll be
As we show them all we captured the monster from the sea di di di di didi di
