The Lyrics

(Instrumental opening)

Oh, I now hide 'neath the deck
of a ship that is a wreck.
At 6:00, it was too rough to eat.

Seven came, hatch gave in.
Good to know us, it had been.
Our Cleveland voyage, we did not complete.

Cheer up, Eddie Fitz.
Oh, we're in some snits
'cause the... Gales of November
went and... broke us to bits!

You once thought of me
as a sailor on the sea.
Now you know how fragile I can be.

Whoa, and a mass held in the Church
in Detroit, you're left in lurch.
There's 28 men who went down with me.

Cheer up, Eddie Fitz.
Oh, we're in some snits
'cause the... Gales of November
went and... broke us to bits!

Cheer up, Eddie Fitz.
Whoa, we're in some snits
'cause the... Gales of November
went and... broke us to bits!

(Instrumental break)

Cheer up, Eddie Fitz.
Oh, we're in some snits
'cause the... Gales of November
went and... broke us to bits!

Cheer up, Eddie Fitz!
Oh, we're in some snits
'cause the... Gales of November
went and... broke us to bits!
(Repeat 'til fade)

I just used this tune for a song about a personal tragedy. Another good Fitzgerald. Do you think we can beat the "Spell"-ing Bee? Lots of good lines here "Cleveland voyage...", "good to know us it had been".

I don't know why this was posted twice. Chucky, feel free to drop the other version.

Started out good and got better with each line. A jaunty little tune for a less than jaunty voyage. Love it!
