Toilers of the Sea

Come away with me,
To toil upon the sea,
Come away and see,
How sweet sea life can be,
Iíll sing Bonnie Dundee,
Off the coast of
Old Guernsey, you and me,
Are toilers of the sea, are toilers of the sea.

Help me put that wrecked
Romance away from me,
Help me try to understand how it was lost at sea,
It wasnít destined to be,
She belonged to another not me,
So I let them be, whatever will be will be,
for the salty old likes of me
For toilers of the sea, for toilers of the sea.

I can stand it if youíre
There with me,
For the solitary life at sea,
Is enough to make you
Sea crazy,
With the whales
And gulls for company,
For toilers of the sea, for toilers of the sea.
  
We can ponder on
The oceanís mysteries,
Iíll unveil a few of
My old sea stories,
Youíll see how kind a tar can be,
I promise youíll be safe with me,
When weíre out at sea,
As toilers of the sea, as toilers of the sea.
