Lyrics

I wish I was a cabin boy,
on a man o’war!
Sam’s gone away, aboard a man o’war!
Pretty work, brave boys,
Pretty work, I say!
Sam’s gone away, aboard a man o’war!
I wish I was a gunner,
I wish I was a boson,
I wish I was an officer,
I wish I was a captain
I wish I was a ship’s cat
I wish I was a molecule
