Lyrics

Lashed to the mast face to the wind
Shirt wide open salt rips your skin
Try not to cry not that they'd know
With this wind and rain
It would hardly show

Out on the main nature attacks
Waves seem alive the sky is black
You are a speck
On the deep in the night
And it fills you with awe
Fills you with fright

But isn't it great to be up
In the rigging singing your song
Or down where that wheel is
Reading them charts
Just like you'd know if you went wrong

A patch on your eye
One peg and one boot
Cut a fine figure in your quest for loot
You shared with your parrot
But she blew away
It's a lonely watch on the briny today

When lost in a storm
Here's what to do
Put a brave face on
Smile at your crew
There's joy in this lostness
Life is a hymn
The choice is yours
Sink or swim

But isn't it great to be up
In the rigging singing your song
Or down where that wheel is
Reading them charts
Just like you'd know if you went wrong

If you've never been to sea
Or swabbed on a deck
Never shivered no timbers
Ah what the heck
The keel knows the water
This sail's just for you
The wind always blows home
No matter what you do

But isn't it great to be up
In the rigging singing your song
Or down where that wheel is
Reading them charts
Just like you'd know if you went wrong
