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.
