Underwater in a submarine
He smokes a cigarette and blows th’ steam
He navigates though th’ deep blue sea
All by his lonesome-no company

Mainwaring in his submarine

Rescued a lady from a sinking ship
Then let her go on an iceberg tip
Ferried a family from an island head
Brought them to cannibals on a beach instead

Mainwaring in his submarine

His eyes are hollow just like his cheeks
His faded uniform not washed in weeks
He had a daughter to call his own
Poseidon’s water took her long ago

Mainwaring in his submarine

Out the portal late at night
A sailor might see a wat’ry light
And if ‘e sees it he’ll let it be
It’s the lonely Captain in his submarine

Mainwaring, where’s your queen?
