I wish I was a sailor
Like my father and uncles before me
I wish I had a name infamous with
With the western seas
And all the girls on the beach wait patiently they say
You can’t run from me

I wish I was a man
And not a little boy running from golden sands
I wish I had some money
To put a diamond ring on your little hand
And I wish I could respond to the girls they keep callin
You can’t be my man ooh baby
