To the Sea




Oh, to sail and wander the seas

by sailing boat or steam.

Just sailing along on the water, 

my life would be a dream.

To bathe with all the sea creatures, 

take showers in the rain.

While living the life of a sailor, 

going out to sea again.

So pipe me out of the harbours, 

send me up to the nest.

Give me a compass in my hand, 

as the sea presents its test.

Spotting new land on a horizon, 

seeing cliffs as they loom.

Putting a message in my bottle, 

right under a silvery moon.
