Ship in a Bottle

He sails a ship in a bottle of whiskey.

He takes to drinking and it takes him to sea.

He finds no message in his bottle uncorked

but he sways with the tide all down the block.

He captains a flying dutchman,

he just can't bring her home.

Can you spare a little something

to help him keep afloat?

He sees a girl on a stormy shore alone

combing her hair with a fish bone,

diamonds flashing on the tops of the waves.

He calls but she can't hear what he says.

He captains a flying dutchman...

He kills his bottle in the spot where he lays

and buries it with a crash in the alleyway.

Cobwebs at the corners of his eyes

are the nets and rigging this sailor's known by.

He captains a flying dutchman...
