Old Johnny he's seen mermaids
When he ran aground
They carried him ashore
When he was sure to drown
They say old Johnny's mad
Seawaters turned his head
But he alone survived
All his colleagues dead
Old Johnny's seen King Neptune
In the wildest storm
He alone survived
While sailing round the horn
He carried him to safety
While all around him died
Now Johnny's telling stories
At the old portside
Old Johnny's been at sea
60 years or more
He's sailed a million miles
And fucked a thousand whores
He's heard King Neptune sing
He's heard the mermaids cry
They'll take him out to sea
When it's his turn to die
