Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn
Let us bridge gaps, let us brave frontiers
Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn
Let us bridge gaps, let us brave frontiers

Get into your ship
Count heads if you like
Have you checked your list of men?
Have you checked it twice?
Did you pack your pantry well?
Does the underbelly swell
With collective anticipation?

Like a troubadour of the water
Your ship marched along
Its own beat, the lonely seas
From point A to point B

Is your shipped rigged right for whales
Or perhaps for sunken treasure?
Do you pursue some sort of science
With the help of your poor sailors?
Glimpsing paradise in rolling waves
Struck by gold in hidden caves
And all their lives
That won’t be saved

Like a troubadour of the water
Your ship marched along
Its own beat, the lonely seas
From point A to point B

Driven to make a constant voyage
The globe a chart of personal feat
It’s a life-long tally of one man’s courage
But the sea’s a foe who can’t be beat
And to keep in always motion
On top the dark ocean
Drop off your used men
Pick up some new men

Like a troubadour of the water
Your ship marched along
Its own beat, the lonely seas
From point A to point B

Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn
Let us bridge gaps, let us brave frontiers
Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn
Let us bridge gaps, let us brave frontiers

Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn
Let us bridge gaps, let us brave frontiers
Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn
Let us bridge gaps, let us brave frontiers

    General CommentSo, a Troubadour is a poet who writes lyrics to music. A songwrite. Why is the ship a songwrite of the seas?
