Wooden Ships Lyrics

Wooden Ships - Crosby

If you're smilin' at me I will understand

'Cause that is something everybody

Everywhere does in the same language

 

I can see by your coat my friend

You're from the other side

 

There's just one thing I got to know

Can you tell me please who won

 

Say can I have some of your purple berries

Yes I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now

Haven't got sick once

Probably keep us both alive

 

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy

Easy you know the way it's supposed to be

 

Silver people on the shoreline let us be

Talkin' 'bout very free and easy

 

Horror grips us as we watch you die

 

All we can do is echo your anguished cry

 

Stare as all human feelings die

We are leavin' you don't need us

 

Go take a sister then by the hand

 

Lead her away from this foreign land

 

Far away where we might laugh again

We are leavin' you don't need us

 

And it's a fair wind blowin' warm

Out of the south over my shoulder

 

Guess I'll set a course and go
