Sobule Jill – When My Ship Comes In lyrics

And I've been watchin' it for years
'Thru the crashin' waves there's a distant bell
It won't stop ringing in my head
All I do is stare and wait
For her to come and take me far away
When my ship comes in I'll be happenin'
After all these years I'll be happy
When my ship comes in
You'll finally love me
Then I can leave you when my ship comes in
There's a bitter old man on the shore
An albatross tied 'round his throat
And he tells me to forget that boat
He rambles on I just get bored
I hear the laughter of the crew
They know the ropes they'll see me thru
To truth and brighter days
When my ship comes in I won't be lonely
I'll have lots of friends and they'll all want me
When my ship comes in you might be sorry
And I'll be something when my ship comes in
When my ship comes in
I'll be standing at the rail,
Waving you goodbye
You'll never be standing you'll be wondering why
When my ship comes in I might take you
You could swab the deck if you're nice today
When my shop comes in we'll be somethin'
Won't that be something when my ship comes in
When my ship comes in I'll be happenin'
After all these years I'll be happy
When my ship comes in you'll finally love me
Then I can have you when my ship comes in
When my ship comes in
