The Lyrics

In the 6th line, "boatswain," has to be pronounced as spelled, not as "bos'n." A gill is 4 ounces.
Before this boat sinks into the abyss,
I have to take another p*ss.
Stuck on this ship and scared sans sh*t.
Another p*ss, another p*ss.
The bay's a fright'ning, bounding main.
Hold me in your arms, please, boatswain!
The ship's gonna go down the drain.
We need a plane, we need a plane!

I yell above the seamen's cries.
They beat their feet; try to stay dry.
Shiver me timbers—above flies
An albatross high in the sky.

The crippled ship is being filled—
A billions gills and tons of krill.
She's fillin' fast and there' no time
To heel or tack or drop a line.
