The Lyrics

All of the crew's sick,
There is no spoon-
Bread, hard and unleavened.
We'll die, and soon
If we do not soon shove
Some grub in our mouths and chew.
We long for stew
'Cause we love meat and, much, we'd love some brew.

One of the crew licks
On an old tar,
Chewin' his leg, 'n'
It's a peg spar,
But still he tries to dine,
Faint, famished, about to swoon.
My pupils drill billowing dark:
I spy a dune!

Ah, but this soup's thick—
Can't see the moon.
Fathoms—once seven
Now I spy two.
The rocks break the ship's spine
We've crashed, and as we're dashed apart,
I sigh a tune.
