Oh so handsome
Oh so strong
Tell me stories of distant shores
All night long
I shiver all over
When I see your lovly tan
And I can tell by your clear blue eyes
Your a sailor man

Oh sailor man
From polar land
Oh sailor man
Come take my hand
Oh sailor man
Take me along
Show me the porta-prince and Hong Kong

Oh sailor man
I sure hope you don't drown
I'd rather have you showing me Cape Town
You know your to New York, New York
Where we can go to bars -
A strong blonde handsome sailor -
Norwegians call you Lars -

Oh sailor man -
From polar land -
Oh sailor man -
Come take my hand -
Oh sailor man -
I'd gladly die -
To see the ports of Rostock and Shanghai -

Sailor Man -
Oh, sailor man -
Please take my hand -
Oh tender sailor man

    General CommentI don't think it means anything, it's just Turbonegro being Turbonegro... and perhaps trying to piss off some mainstream homophobes?
