When the sun goes down and I'm tucked in bed,
And all the house is still;
I will sail my ship on a sparkling sea,
While the cold winds blow a chill.
With my slicker on, I will sail 'til dawn,
Cast nets upon the sea;
While my spirit soars and the ocean roars,
And the tides surge endlessly.
I will chart my course with my wee sextant,
The stars will be my guide;
And I'll sail my ship o'er the ocean's depths,
With the old moon at my side.
I will sail all night in the clear moonlight,
'Til dawn streaks across the sky;
Then I'll turn around put my anchor down,
For another day is nigh.
