Lyrics

Father I'm writing to tell you I'm fine But life is hard on a ship of the line Every day's just work wind water and waves My midshipman's berth is foul smelling and stark, The few lamps we have barely hold back the dark We live in the shadows of work wind water and waves chorus Work, wind, water and waves,work, wind, water and waves We live in the shadows of work wind water and waves My quest for commission consumes my whole life Perhaps we should talk of arranging a wife I've not much to offer but work wind water and waves I have three more years 'till my lieutenant's test Toward that day I toil at my best I try to embrace the work wind water and waves chorus Work, wind, water and waves, work, wind, water and waves I try to embrace the work, wind, water and waves bridge Much of the crew is in service by press, against their desire Yet it's a sight to behold how these eight hundred men work as one under fire chorus Work, wind, water and waves,work, wind, water and waves Every day's just work wind water and waves
