I was born to sail the seas
I have sailed the seven seas
for forty years and more.
I have traveled countless lands,
walked every foreign shore.

I have skippered every craft
from skiff to ketch to yacht.
I can use the boson’s pipe,
tie every kind of knot.

I was born to sail the seas;
it is my love to roam.
Just put me on a sailing ship.
The ocean is my home.

I crave the rocking ‘neath my feet
and breathing salty air.
I’ll weather any kind of storm
without a single care

I use the stars to navigate
so I can sail at night.
But I still sometimes get confused
… is starboard left or right?
