The Lyrics

Everybody else is doing one so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Ooo my little pretty ship, pretty ship
Sailin' with some iron on the Gitche Gumee
Ooo they took a little trip, a little trip
Suddenly the November winds turned gloomy

Old November witch
What a bitch
Blowin' o'er the side
Gales of freezin' rain
What a pain
It's a bumpy ride
Ed Ed Ed Ed Ed
Whoo
Eh-Eh-Eh Ed Fitzgerald

Well, it's almost suppertime
Not this time
Sorry, but it's too rough to feed ya, fellas
Got some water comin' in
Wreck begins
So long, well it's been good to know ya, fellas

Where's the love of God
Kinda odd
They'd have made it fine
Fifteen little miles
If they'd just put that much behind
Ed Ed Ed Ed Ed
Whoo
Eh-Eh-Eh Ed Fitzgerald

Maritimers rang the chimes, rang the chimes
Once for every man on the Ed Fitzgerald
In that m-m-musty hall, m-musty hall
Must have rung it twenty-nine times, Fitzgerald

Legend, it lives on
Chippewas
Where I heard it said
Lake Superior
It don't give, don't give up its dead
Ed Ed Ed Ed Ed
Whoo

Eh-Eh-Eh-Eh-Eh-Eh-Eh
Ed Ed Ed Ed Ed
Whoo
Eh-Eh-Eh Ed Fitzgerald
Eh-Eh-Eh Ed Fitzgerald
Eh-Eh-Eh Ed Fitzgerald
Eh-Eh-Eh Ed Fitzgerald

Oooooohhh aahhhh Ed Fitzgerald
Oooooshhh aahhhh Ed Fitzgerald
Oooooshhh aahhhh Ed Fitzgerald

I hope you didn't get knackered writing this!

Soon we'll have 29 writers churning out Fitz's. Another great contribution to the contest with no judges and no prize.

OMR. I've gots the lyrics, now I'm trying to make them fits. If you knew where gale winds blew, you'd sail your crew avoiding it, Sinking of the Fritz. Something like that.

Now you've got me imagining Peter Boyle bellowing "Gitche Gumeeeee!"

I'll be up in the crow's nest keeping a lookout for it.
