Mama mama
You're a whiz and a scholar too
Mama open up the room lock
Sip sip
I'm going to the moon dock
He gives to me
Buckles off shingles
Off a cockleshell on norway basin
Coke and tuna
Boots and roses from russia
Now I'll live and die and rise
With my captain
Mama say go
Meet me captain saint lucifer
Darlin' I'll be there
Don't you know
Meet me captain saint lucifer
Darlin' I'll be there
Don't you know
Now don't you know I love you
Meet me captain saint lucifer
La la la la la la la la
Oo I love you
Love you I do
Mama mama you're a whiz and a scholar too
Mama I'm at anchor in your glow now
Sip sip
Even as I go now
He gives to me
Buckles off shingles
And a jangle from a congo love chase
Early bloomers made of earth and love lace
Now I'll live and die and rise
With my captain
Mama be happy
Meet me captain saint lucifer
Darlin' I'll be there
Don't you know
Meet me captain saint lucifer
Darlin' I'll be there
Don't you know
Gutters in stacks
Is where I come from
Buckles off a poverty drum
Oh my love trumpet soul
Tell gabriel
To tell the captain
Thank you baby
You're my baby now

    General Commentc'mon people, no comments on this great song???

    I think there are a few valid interpretations of what exactly captain saint lucifer represents: a lover, hard liquor, drugs, a mother's love. Which is correct? This sort of song is intentionally left vague by the songwriter so that each listener may bring their own experience and interpretation to the song.

    I know this sounds like a copout on my part. Nevertheless I think the great LN truly would want us to think of it this way.

    I do wish I knew what the hell some of the phraseology means:

    buckles off shingles? I've not a clue about this one.

    going to the moon dock? This could mean she's about to get high - on pot or booze or whatever.

    Gabriel is a biblical reference - he was an angel messenger from god according to some beliefs.
