Damage control, this is the bridge/ The captain won't go down with the ship/ He's gouged a hole the size of Tennessee in her hull/ And he exhibits no concern/ He was a boyhood wharf-rat loose on the docks/ Until the tender age of seventeen/ He cut his teeth in shanty-towns and poker games/ And never loved his mother a day/ Oh such a sweet guardian was piracy/ To teach an akward child the ways of the world/ We take what we want before we take what we need/ And then we take until there's nothing left/ Oh captain, My captain/ Oh captain, My captain/ The wheelhouse beckons/ Oh captain, My captain/ You will drown! (x4)/ You will drown because you're lashed to a mast/ You will drown because the captain must go down with the ship/ You will drown/ You will drown/ You care to test the mettle of the tempest-tossed sea/ Under the watchful eyes of Poseidon himself?/ Amerigo Vespucci nonesuch audacity/ Your final aquatic descent:/ Davey Jones embraced you and laughed/ Davey Jones embraced you and laughed
