The Lyrics

Sailing to jetties the whole world around
Her poop deck well hosed, this girl’s starboard bound
Time to batten the hatches, hail Davy Jones
And set off to sail alone

Checks on her bearings with knots and degrees
As Jess Watson rides on the cool ocean breeze
Will she capsize floating through a cyclone?
I hear Megan Gale has blown

Over sunny waters, spinnaker unfurled
I bet she’s three sheets to the wind
This ‘weaker vessel’ boating is floating
She needs more cox swain… for her to win

Riggers with latitude, venture on forth
Want more than friendships? Girls like to explore
But Jesse… Martin… still holds the throne
You need genitalia grown

In Ella’s Pink Lady, this young brave female
Became the world’s biggest around the world fail
But she travelled so far, all over the globe
At least she’s no whaler
So cheer for this sailor
Let’s welcome our failure home!
