lyrics

We built this ship out of scraps from the lumber yard
500 nails, rigged it with bed sheet sails
And we rose at dawn and we launched from the waterfront
Wayward the city line faded away

Onward we sailed off into oblivion
Nothing but blue stretched above and below
We did not know just where we would wash ashore
We put our faith in the will of the wind

Our hair grew long, our skin turned a golden brown
Lost track of days and nights that'd gone by
We danced 'round the mast and sand sea songs at twilight
We became lovers just to pass the time

We sailed through fog and poaching sun
And sometimes the wind wouldn't let up for days
We cried out our pleas for mercy up to the sky
But we carried on as the moon waxed and waned

Sometimes it seemed our journey would see no end
We feared the sea would devour us whole
And our friends would speculate what had become of us
Tales of our travels would never be told

One day the water was an eerie calm
Dark clouds moved in and swallowed the sun
And we found ourselves on the brink of a hurricane
Our fate was sealed, our song was sung

Crashing and rumbling a storm now was raging
And we were clinging on tight to the shrouds
That's when lightning hit and our vessel was split
From stern to the bow our great ship went down

We built this ship out of scraps from the lumberyard
500 nails, rigged it with bedsheet sails
And we did not know just where we would wash ashore
We put our faith in the will of the wind
