Chorus :
Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor
Rich man, poor man, bound or free
They all may ride upon my shoulders
I am the spirit of the sea


Since the dawn of time and travelling
Trading silks and spices fine
Precious stones and human cargoes
Gold and silver sweet, red wine
I have heard the songs of merchants
Heard their greedy plans and schemes
Kept them safe on my sparkling waters
Held them close and fired their dreams

Chorus

Men have used me through the ages
Wrecks of ships and lost dead souls
Rest upon my chill grey forest
And Neptune's bell forever tolls
They have tried to steal my treasures
Pirates now for modern times
Always taking, never giving
Sorrows left by mindless crimes

Brave men risk their lives for others
Tiny boats on mighty waves
Villages of sons and brothers
Put to sea, men's lives to save
But I ask a dreadful price
Veiled, sad faces on the quay
Search for signs on dark horizons
Look for lights across the sea
