Sugar and spice, tastes of paradise
I long to roam far from home
A life at sea - that's the life for me
Starboard starlight each and every night

I saw three ships a-sailing
Upon the ocean blue
Bringing bells from Burma, beans from Lima
And tin from Timbuktu

Oh, heave-ho, anchors a-way we go

I swear on all the tea in China that
There could be nothing finer than

Riding the breeze over the seven seas
I'll sail with her, aye aye sir
She's tall she's broad, gen'rous of plank and board
Farewell to shore
We're bound for Singapore

Got a Madagascan monkey and a Polynesian bird
Got a headful of the strangest things you ever heard

White whales, tall tales, mermaid's fingernails
A life at sea, that's the life for me
