We were hopeful, optimistic
Believers at the start
The spirit of discovery
Was burning in our heart
We were hungry for adventure
And our battle flag unfurled
When we set out on a journey
To the bottom of the world

Well, our good ship the Endurance
Fought a noble fight
Defeated from the pressure,
Attacked from every side
Yeah, she sank beneath the surface
And the icy water swirled
As she drifted to the bottom,
Yeah, the bottom of the world

Well, here's to good old Shakespeare,
A noble hound was he,
A loyal friend until the end,
The best one he could be
Never gave us any trouble,
His tail just wagged and curled
Raise a glass to good old Shakespeare
At the bottom of the world

We were stranded and abandoned
At the mercy of the sea
Well, I've seen the face of death
And he was staring back at me
And into an angry ocean
Our battered boat was hurled
Yeah, we tangled with the devil
At the bottom of the world

Here's to Shackleton, our leader,
For keeping us alive
His determination
The only reason we survived
Yeah, because of him I'll be coming home
To my wife and my little girl
Yeah, we made it home together
From the bottom of the world
Yeah, we made it home together
From the bottom of the world
Yeah, the bottom of the world
Yeah
Yeah
