The Lyrics

I don't want a steam boat
burning all that filthy coal
I don't want an airship flying
that hydrogen gas is foul

all I want is barque rig
it'll be everything I'd need

I don't want a big clipper
going up and down, all around the waves
I don't want a schooner ship sailing
with fore and aft rigged sails

I want to sail a - windjammer!
a four-masted barque, yes indeed
oh let me sail the - windjammer!
That would be true ship to me

A sailing ship with sleek lines
and four masts to provide the force
Square sails for running the tradewinds
spanker for keeping the course

I want to sail a - windjammer!
a four-masted barque, yes indeed
I'd better sail a - windjammer!
all around the world
oh let me sail the - windjammer!
That would be true ship to me
I'd sail a windjammer
let there be no doubt about it

wind - wind - windjammer!

I've hoisted Blue Peter
set the sails
we hit the tradewinds
we go with the whales, we go with the whales

oh won't you sail with me
and I will sail with you
sail with me, I will sail with you
yea, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you...

Storms and calms
we'll go where grow palms
going to reef the mainsail
reef, reef the royals, hey

I've been heading that bearing
I've been heading that bearing
going to sail that bearing, yes I do
come on, come on, sure with you
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
I've been sailing the tradewinds
I've been sailing the tradewinds
it's what we're doing, doing
all day and night

Nice writing Susanna-555! However, not only would I like a Zeppelin of over 800' long but also a German S-100 S-boot ;-)

I agree...the sea always seems like the most romantic way to travel

Nice imagery Susanna, and a great improvement on the OS.
