All together and whole forever, rising on winds that blow whenever Climbing up clouds light as a feather, drinking and cheering aboard together Heading abroad to rightly gather, and turn a sweet village to fiery slaughter; On a steady ship that never stutters, that looms above the misty waters;
In the light of the merry sea and the jolly old sailor The ratchet old pirate and starry-eyed herald The more the better to sing together and laugh along to stories and trebles On a steady ship that never stutters, that looms above the misty waters;
On the clear blue waves we reach for horizons For more islands to claim and more gilded altars Keelhauling men for a ship that's faster One that's steady and never stutters, that looms above the bloody waters;
Walking the plank for the crimes of a captain, Made to abandon all gold he was wrapped in, Sliced to the bone, along with the martyrs, On a ship that never stutters,
that looms above the misty waters.
