Captain Of A Sinking Ship

The life boats are out
Women and children first
One thing on my mind
A little rum for my thirst
Woo – hoo
I’ll be going down with her
 
Yeah me I’m going down
I’m the Captain of this sinking ship
 

There’s nothing I can do for the drunken sailor
He’s flat out on his ass
The rats have left already
They’re swimming pretty fast
Not me
I’m staying put
 
I await my watery grave
Cos’ I’m the Captain of this sinking ship
 
Yeah I’m never gonna desert her
I’m the Captain of this sinking ship
 
The ship’s cat Moses just woke up
I know he want’s some food
Sorry there kitten
The Captain’s got bad news
We’re both
Going down with her
 
Yeah the Captain and the cat
Are both stranded on this sinking ship

I’ll be going down proud
Cos’ I’m the captain of this Goddamn ship

My last entry in the log reads
Tell my children goodbye
Got water up to my waist now
But this is the life
That I chose
And I’ll live and die by the sword
 
It’s the way that fate spins
I’m the Captain of this sinking ship
 
Hope God forgives me for my sins
I’m the Captain of this sinking ship
