'Twas in my youth, I was a country boy hailing from Derbyshire
Lost in a summertime,
ah, when the world was mine!

Then on a whim, I left it nimbly and took to the ocean blue
Thinking it happier,
alongside a crew!

The shipmates got scurvy,
The waves topsy-turvy,
Oh, just to see land again!

But that was so long,
I sit with my pension now, cursing the ocean blue
I give it all here, my warning to you!

Now I'm painting fences,
Scrounging me pences,
And lost in that feeling again...

Oh, ocean blue, ocean who took my youth
Oh, what'chu gonna do?

Oh, ocean blue, what are you going to do?
Oh, to the sailors, to the crew?

Oh, ocean whale, what a tail, what a tale!

But I'm just a miser,
And you're none the wiser,
For you're all to be
Lost in the sea!
