lyrics

I don’t know where I’m going
And I don’t know what I’ve done
But I’m on a ship in the Great Salt Lake
And I’ve soaked myself in rum
Our wives are told their jewelry’s sold
For a harpoon and a sail
And we’ll buy it back in a month or two
When we catch a great big whale

Chorus:
We’re stinking, we’re drinking
We’re having a good time
We sing all night and we’re drunk all day
We haven’t earned a dime
And it’s scurvy, blimey
If our wives are ever told
That there ain’t no whales in the Great Salt Lake
They’d make us stay at home

They think it’s rough and they think we’re tough
They’re proud to be our wives
They said a prayer as we left our homes
Hoping we’d come back alive
There’s seagull shit all along the deck
And the brine shrimp swim on by
And the hold is full of as much beer
As our wive’s jewelry would buy

We haven’t got a need for a captain of our ship
Cause you don’t need wind and you don’t need sails
To take this kind of trip
When the beer is gone and the rum’s all out
And the whiskey is no more
We’ll say goodbye to the Foggy Bitch
And we’ll have to walk to shore.
