VAUGHN MONROE


A Capital Ship Lyrics

A STUDIO BAND
VOCALS BY VAUGHN MONROE (VM) AND
THE BOATSWAINMEN (BM)
(VM) A CAPITAL SHIP FOR AN OCEAN TRIP
AS THE WALLOPING WIND BLEW BLIND
THE WIND THAT BLEW DISMAYED HER CREW
MORE TROUBLED THE CAPTAIN'S MIND.
THE MAN AT THE WHEEL WAS MADE TO FEEL
CONTEMPT FOR THE WILDEST BLO-0-OW
THOUGH IT OUGHT T'HAVE 'PEARED
WHEN THE GAY LAD FEARED
THAT HE'D BEEN IN HIS BUNK BELOW.
CHROUS;
(VM&BM)SO BLOW YE WINDS, HI HO
A ROVING I WILL GO
I'LL STAY NO MORE ON ENGLAND'S SHORE
SO LET THE MUSIC PLAY-AY-AY.
I'M OFF FOR THE MORNING TRAIN
I'VE CROSSED THE RAGING MAIN
(VM) I'M OFF FOR YOU LOVE, WITH A BOXING GLOVE
(VM&BM)TEN THOUSAND MILES AWAY.

(VM) THE CAPTAIN SAT ON THE COMMODORE'S HAT
AND DINED IN A ROYAL WAY
ON PICKLES AND FIGS AND LITTLE ROAST PIGS
AND GUNNERY BREAD EACH DAY.
THE COOK WAS DUTCH, AND BEHAVED AS SUCH
FOR THE DIET HE SERVED THE CREW-EW-EW
WAS A COUPLE OF TONS OF HOT CROSS BUNS

SERVED UP WITH SUGAR AND GOO.
(VM&BM)CHORUS REPEATED AS PREVIOUSLY DONE

(VM) THEN WE ALL FELL ILL AS MARINERS WILL
ON A DIET THAT'S ROUGH AND CRUDE
AND WE SHIVERED AND SHOOK
AS WE DIPPED THE COOK
IN A TUB OF HIS GRUESOME FOOD.

ALL NAUTICAL PRIDE WE CAST ASIDE
AS WE RAN THE SHIP A SHORE-ORE-ORE
ON THE GULLIBY ISLES
WHERE THE POO POO SMILES
AND THE RUBALEE DUCKS DOTH ROAR
(BM) ON THE GULLIBY ISLES
WHERE THE POO POO SMILES
AND THE RUBALEE DUCKS DOTH ROAR.

(VM) ON RUG BUG BARK FROM DAWN TO DARK
WE DINED TILL WE ALL HAD GROWN
UNCOMMONLY SHRUNK
WITH A CHINESE JUNK
CAME UP FROM A TO -I-BLE ZONE
SHE WAS CHUBBY AND SQUARE
BUT WE DIDN'T MUCH CARE
SO WE HAPPILY PUT OUT TO SEA-EA-EA
AND WE LEFT ALL THE CREW
OF THE JUNK TO CHEW
ON THE BARK OF THE RUG BUG TREE.
(VM&BM) CHORUS REPEATED AS PREVIOULY
DONE TO FINISH THE SONG.
