The Lyrics

John Denver, huh? So you're gonna go THERE, Patrick McWilliams? Mark James also wrote "Always On My Mind," "Moody Blue" and "Hooked On a Feeling." Please, Patrick, if you do that last one, in the name of all that is holy, do the B.J. Thomas version, so we don't have to hear the ooga-chagas of the Blue Swede version.
(instrumental opening)

We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby.

Why can't you see
what it's doin' to me
when we're 15 miles from Whitefish Bay?

We can't go on together
in suspicious clime.
(Suspicious clime!)
And we can't get our ore
through suspicious clime.

So back in Detroit, I know
their heads are bowed down low.
They know these 29 men bound to die.

Here we go again.
Main hatchway gave in.
Fellas, it's too rough, now we're cryin'!
(Now we're cryin'!)

We can't go on together
in suspicious clime!
(Suspicious clime!)
And we can't get our ore
through suspicious clime!

Won't let these men survive!
Aw, water's up to our eyes!
We can't stop, we're... gonna die.
No, honey. I'm no position
to lie to you.
Uh-uh.
Yeah, yeah...

We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby.

Why can't you see
what it's doin' to me
when we're 15 miles from Whitefish Bay?

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Oh, don't you know...
We're caught in a storm.
I can't walk out.
Because I'm stuck on this ship, baby...

Patrick - August 23, 2011 - Report this comment
As the dyslexic Samuel F.B. Morse once wrote "What hath Dog wrought"? I hope we're not caught in a trap. But if we are, it's no worse than a few other obsessions I've seen around here. I'll keep the Blue Swede out of my mind. Though once you mention it, now all I can see is a blue Swede. The ooga chakas are a bit rough to deal with. Though I am considering a song with a few nonsense words in it. I also promise that if I do "I've Got Rhythm, I won't use that 1960's version by The Happenings. When I was in high school, we thought they were singing "tits, tits, tits, tits...".
