The Lyrics

These "aye"s, Captain Bligh are for you.
Yardarms--don't lash us there again.
Scurvy on high seas, yeah
But you won't make us "limeys," although navy, says so,
Need source of vitamin C, yeah
Coconuts, coconuts?

These "ayes" not enough--still you flog the men
You're hard, that's why you have got no friends.
Some nerve on high seas, yeah,
Mean's we're going to mutiny, yo, ho ho!
On the prow you'll not be, yeah
Lifeboat it, with astrolabe.

These guys are spyin',
Their eyes have seen a little lump of land that is gonna be
Home--an island no can get to.

These guys are tryin'
To beach their ship and make it lunge onto the rocks, out of the sea
And any valuables rescue

These guys are fryin',
These guys have torched the Bounty's hulk; no one's every gonna see
This ship again sailin' the deep blue.
