no longer will i beneath you shelter
all that you have given to me
it was never on my behalf


all this, all and more i cede to you
swear away in fealty
as i sail for warmer climes


i am a king! you can't deny me my kingdom!


what's this camaraderie of country
that turns before me salty
rust on fragile parts


all this, all you have inspired
the crew and ship of empire
rig and mast and spars
box of stripes and stars


i am a king! you can't deny me my kingdom!


you, sailor, on the lonely sea
will you turn and promise me
you'll always be alive


oh i might stutter, i might falter
sail uncharted waters
drowning, lost, then found
drowning, lost, then found


i am a king! you can't deny me my kingdom!


you, sailor, on the lonely sea
will you turn and promise me
you'll always be alive
