Where, where do they go?
Where are the fishermen gone?
Headed for home
Onto the sea
Under the sun
Into the ocean
Straight into the rum

Where, where do they go?
Where are the fishermen gone?
Headed for home
Into the sea
Covered in brine
Into the open
Hauling the lines

Sail, sail, sailor beware

Where, where do they go?
Where are the fishermen gone?
Headed for home
Into the wind
Onto the wakes
Under the gale, boys
Gathering breaks

Sail, sail, sailor beware
Sail, sail, sailor beware

Way, swept away
Into the ocean
Pulled to the brave
Gather the sea
A watery grave
Under the foam
Holds the luck of this age

Sail, sail, sailor beware
Sail, sail, sailor beware

Where, where do they go?
Where are the fishermen gone?
Resting at home
Deep in the lungs
Just out of reach
Singing a song
Singing a song
A song for the sea

Sail, sail, sailor beware
Sail, sail, sailor beware
Sail, sail, sailor beware
