"Davy's Dinghy" as written by and Ruth Wallis....
Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!

Ever since we met my life has never been a bore
'Cus when he leaves his ship he brings his dinghy to the shore
And when we meet out on the sand and confidentially,
His dinghy does more good upon the land than on the sea!

Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!

Some does climb the riggin's and some just climbs it slow
And some guys when they climb the riggin's holler out "Ye Ho!"
Some just sail right into port and sail right out again
But when Davy drops his anchor you can tell the boys from men!

Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!

Davy really knows the proper way to steer his craft
There's one sailor really knows his forecastle from his aft!
He tells me that a sailors life is really a delight
For years he's slept in wave's he's said that's why he rocks all night!

Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!

Davy say's his dinghy has been to many ports
He's loved a lot of ladies and he's stormed a lot of forts.
You'd think with such a little dinghy it could not be done
But Davy mans that dinghy like a man behind a gun!

Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!

Now other sailors bring me things from Spain and Biarritz
Some are too big and some are too small the dang things just don't fit
But Davy has a knakin' that's why I give him a hug
'Cuz whenever he brings me something it fit's as snug as a bug in the rug!

Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!

Some day we'll wed an then I'll keep him under key and lock
And also we will keep his little dinghy in my dock
But Davy's so attached to it this is what he's said
"I hope I never lose my dinghy I'd rather lose my head!

Of all the dinghies that sail the sea,
Davy's is the only one for me!
