Ahoy! Ahoy I say!
is anyone aboard this creaking hulk?
permission to come aboard
check your cargo manifest
looks mighty dangerous to me
are you drifting and derelict
at the mercy of the winds and waves
too many dives, too much rum
too many voyages that ended up ‘on the rocks’
were you asleep at the wheel?
not on the bridge when needed
I’m telling you now Captain
you better stoke your fires
get some steam up
set the engines at full speed
read your sea charts and captain’s maps
get your ship back on course
set sail for port while you still can
fix your longitude - adjust your latitude
correct your attitude
unless you want to wind up lost at sea
or before a court of inquiry
that might not be sympathetic to your plight
