D-a-d – There's A Ship lyrics

I got a lord of my own
And I got him at home
He's the one that I trust
Not to say I must
But he's a friendly guy
He used to live in the sky
And then I gave him the key
Now he's living with me
He's not the holy ghost
Or my father nor my son
If I should give him any name
It would be Captain Fun

'Cause there's a ship There's a ship
Sailing by Sailing by
There's a ship There's a ship
Sailing by Sailing by
There's a ship There's a ship
Sailing by Sailing by
There's a ship In the sky
Sailing by Sailing by

And I know if I try
He'll always stand by
If I should laugh and cheer
I know he's here
He's like E.T. if you're asking me
But he wears this plastic-bubble
That gave us trouble
'Coz he's from the sky
And without it he would die
People ask: "what's that?"
I reply: "that's Captain Space-hat"

There's a ship...
