"Black Ship in the Harbour" as written by Maurice Anthony Deebank and Lawrence Hayward....
I was a pauper
I was second class
I was a moment
That quickly passed
I was a gambler gambled on you
Rain shone and the sun poured through
Wind whistled a whispered word it was true
The world is a stage that revolves around you
How are you feeling
On this broken day
Where are you heading
I heard you lost your way
How is your mind is it still confused
Has anyone told you you're being used
You're fighting a battle that you're going to lose

The world was a stage that revolved around you
I said to the blazing moon
I want to be what I want to be
You said that your aim in life
Was o break through and be free
You bought me a diamond
What's that for
I stole you some money
Because I thought you were poor
Yes I was a gambler gambled on you
Rain shone and the sun poured through
Wind whistled a whispered word it was true
Want something for nothing lady that's you
