The Lyrics

A Dutch girl, Laura Dekker, age 13, wants to be the youngest gcircumnavigator of the world. She has done it already once - with her parents when she was younger. She first sailed solo when she was six, and at age of eleven, she spent seven weeks alone at Atlantic on her yacht. The Dutch child protection officials do not like of the idea at all, and wants to take her into custody...
She's Laura the Sailor Girl,
She's Laura the Sailor Girl.
She wanna sail the oceans
and that caused commotion -
She's Laura the Sailor Girl.

She's born at the high seas
she knows storms and the light breeze
She wants to sail round the world
She soloed to UK
Police thought ain't OK
to sail alone for young girl

Dutch social workers, oh they got mad
They said it's a thought very bad
They want prevent her sail the world
Won't a young teenager
make high-seas nav'gator
For Laura the Sailor Girl.

She's Laura the Sailor Girl,
She's Laura the Sailor Girl.
Her daddy supports her
knows what fuel she burns there -
She's Laura the Sailor Girl.
Laura's website is here. Now that's girl power!

Susanna - I hope Laura gets to float her boat. Interesting story and parody. Thanks for sharing the story.

Guy, I hope too. I skippered a yacht only at 15 for the first time, and the first international leg I did when I was 23 (to Sweden). Laura is amazing!
