I'm an old man on the sea,
Sailed the straits alone, my ship and me.
Wait each day for her last call,
The night will come and she will take it all

Take me where the winds have blown,
On an endless voyage home,
Where the albatross has flown.

Swabbed the decks both near and far,
Around the cape, my mate, and old Jack Tar.
Fought with Nelson side by side,
He's just a man with wits and some time to bide.

Take me where the winds have blown,
On an endless voyage home,
Where the albatross has flown.

La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.

Just an old man on the sea,
Sailed the straights alone my ship and me
Wait each day for her last call,
Night will come and she will take it all.

Take me where the winds have blown,
On an endless voyage home,
Where the albatross has flown.
