O'Jays – Ship Ahoy lyrics

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy, yeah
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy

As far as your eye can see
Men, women, and baby slaves
Coming to the land of Liberty
Where life's design is already made
So young and so strong
They're just waiting to be saved...

Lord, I'm so tired
And I know you're tired too
Look over the horizon, see the sun
Shining down on you...

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy, yeah
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy. Uh-huh

Can't you feel the motion of the ocean
Can't you feel the cold wind blowing by?
There's so many fish in the sea

We're just, we're just, we're just
We're just masts?
Riding on the waves...
The waves
We are
Riding on the waves...

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy, now yeah
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!

They're coming by the hundreds
Coming by the thousands, too
Look over the horizon, see the sun
Shining down on you...

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
My-yyy
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!

We're just, we're just, we're just
We're just masts?
Riding on the waves...
The waves
We are
Riding on the waves...

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!

Totin' that barge, lift that bail
Get a little something, gonna land in jail
Somebody bite the whip
I'm your master
And you're my slave
Uh-huh
And you're my slave
I'm your master

Look over there, what do you see

Tell him look over here, what do you see
