I'm a sailor peg
And I've lost my leg
Climbing up the top sails
I've lost my leg!

I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping off... To find my wooden leg

I'm a sailor peg
And I've lost my leg
Climbing up the top sails
I've lost my leg!

I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping up to Boston whoa
I'm shipping off... To find my wooden leg

    Soy un tipo de cambio marinero
    Y he perdido mi pierna
    Subir las velas superiores
    He perdido mi pierna!

    Estoy shipping up to boston whoa
    Estoy shipping up to boston whoa
    Estoy shipping up to boston whoa
    Estoy enviando apagado ... Para encontrar mi pierna de madera

    Soy un tipo de cambio marinero
    Y he perdido mi pierna
    Subir las velas superiores
    He perdido mi pierna!

    Estoy shipping up to boston whoa
    Estoy shipping up to boston whoa
    Estoy shipping up to boston whoa
    Estoy enviando apagado ... Para encontrar mi pierna de madera

    He's a sailor that's just come back from sea. He's heading to boston to get his first bit of good alcohol since he was shipped out. So now, he's "shipping off" to boston to "find his wooden leg", which is a sailor's euphemism for getting drunk.

    I'm pretty sure this song is about a pilot going to nevada to locate her misplaced glass eye. But i've also thought, perhaps the glass eye is the pilot's euphemism for a blueberry pancakes. So its pretty much anyones's guess.
    Sweet melody though. Cover bands love this song.
