I'm a boatman with a passport by my side
I go from sea to sea and from bay to bay
I know nothing of your open legs
So go away.
They got nothing for a boy like me
With your simple words and your taste for tea
And I know you know
And I love to hear you whine.
And the water feels fine from here.

You lure boys with a siren song
A song that goes along the shores tonight
Well, that's fine.
But don't you call it toward my ear
Cause when you will it'll disappear
And you will be alone throughout the night
Alone throughout the night
Far away, alone.

So tell me of what you hear
Oh, darling, dear, I am a afraid we've crashed
On the shore of your island.
On the shore of your beach
But don't talk to me, no
Don't talk to me.

Because I fear the way you speak
and I fear the way you smell.
It smells like lilac leaves
Across the balustrade shores
And as the water swims along
I feel so warm.
(1,2,3,4)

There was a sailor by the name of Jim
Through your shores and it took him
to the shore of your wonderful beach.
You told him he’d be great
And you saw him closing on the lake
And you took him and in drowned him in your compliments
And all that was left was a parapet of a wind that used to blow.
And all that was left was a bone and a robe.

There was a sailor by the name of Marc
And he drove his ship right to the spark
And he heard your voice and how you sang for him
But by the time I leave, I’ll make sure that you leave it there.
That you leave it there; oh, oh.

I got the sails upon my ship
And the wind is pushing toward a slip
And my passport’s gone
Make sure that I come alright
So when you start to sing your tune
I’m gonna plug my ears and leave the room
Til you believe me and I can leave that night
And when the ships come back to shore
They’ll find me alright
And when the ships come back to shore
They’re gonna ask me about that nautical whore.

And I’ll tell them that you opened your legs
For the sailor with the cutest face
But he didn’t look, no
He just walked away.
And they’ll play the trumpet taps
For all the boys who didn’t know her snatch
And were lost inside the way she sang.
The way she sang.
