The lake swells take another prisoner
The lake waves beat upon the vessel
Causing a list, starboard to port.
The steamer will surely sink.

The storm began as many others.
As the whisper winds turned to gales,
The lake waves beat upon the vessel.

Each one longer than the one before,
The troughs would run deeper now,
Causing a list, starboard to port.

The hatches would all loosen now.
The lake water filling the holds.
The steamer will surely sink.
