B.W. Stevenson – East India Company lyrics

Well, we're sailin' out at midnight
On the East India Company
Bring a flask o' wine, a wheel o' cheese
And the stuff to make you sneeze

Oh, Captain, Captain
Those winds feel just right
And we'll be talkin' to the dolphins
By this time tomorrow night

This town don't like me
And the police are after me
Come about as far as I can go
Without sailin' the deep blue sea

Got a lady in India
Lord, she can set me free
We're the importers of oriental spices
Silks, calicos, sugar and ivory

Oh, Captain, Captain
Those winds feel just right
And we'll be talkin' to the dolphins
By this time tomorrow night

Well, we're sailin' out at midnight
On the East India Company
Bring a flask o' wine, a wheel o' cheese
And the stuff to make you sneeze

Oh, Captain, Captain
Those winds feel right to me
We're the importers of oriental spices
Silks, calicos, sugar and ivory

We be sailin'
We be sailin'
We be sailin'
We be sailin'

(Yeah, we be sailin')
We be sailin'
We be sailin'
(Yeah, we be sailin')
We be sailin'
We be sailin'

(Yeah, we be sailin')
We be sailin'
We be sailin'
(Yeah, we be sailin')
We be sailin'
We be sailin'
