I thought I saw my ship a-coming
Coming here for me
I thought I saw my ship a-coming
Here to make me free

But what has been will be forlorn, I sit here until dawn
I don't wanna live for the cannons in your war

I thought I saw my ship a-coming
Sailing towards this coast
I thought I saw my ship a-coming
No Jolly Roger hoist
No Jolly Roger hoist

But what has been will be forever and nothing will ever change
And so until then I'll be the cabin boy of your song

I thought I saw my ship a-coming
On scented ocean spray
I thought I saw my ship a-coming
Here to stow away

But what has been will be forever the albatross's dream
And so forevermore Abyssinia waits for me
