"The Wreck of the Arthur Lee" as written by and Robyn Hitchcock....
The wreck of the Arthur Lee
Will never return again

The captain and all his men
Went up and jumped overboard
"Jesus is Lord" they cried

Believe in love!
Believe in love
And I'll believe in you

The missing Avenger planes
Will never return to base
Don't you wait up for them

How often have you boys said
"I ain't gonna bump no more"?
"We ain't gonna bump no more"

Believe in love! Believe in love!
And I'll believe if you'll believe in me
I got home
There was nobody there
Just the phone
Let it ring in the air
But it's home

The wreck of the Arthur Lee
Will never return again
Never return again
