There is more to a sailor
Than a tailor,
Stitching a tear is more than
A tar will do.
Ho, Ho Sinbad the sailor I am-
My father a poor tailor
Spun yarns more than good for him.
He cut sleeves shorter
while his eyes crossed out;
He hemmed and hawed while he
Looped his needle and thread
To draw blood and his life out.
There is more to a sailor
Than a tailor.
Ho, Ho Sinbad the sailor I am
I am more at sea than the tailor
Never have I spun yarns like my father
But I am left
Just as high and dry
Tucked in a shroud!
