We were all in costume as the night fell
And I was a sailor
And you were the devil
And I kept calling you captain
And you asked me to stop
But I kept calling you captain

We walked into the kitchen
Set fire to the table
And I watched your eyes light up as you watched it burn
I’ll meet you in the city
When spring has come again
And we’ll wait and wait and wait and wait
And I kept calling you captain
But you asked me to stop
And I kept calling you captain

She leaves with ease, the atmosphere
And burns up in a bright bouquet
And I see her go down in a glorious flame
And fade endlessly away
Alright

We were all in costume as the night fell
And I was a sailor
And you were the devil
And I kept calling you captain
You asked me to stop
But I kept calling you captain
