The Lyrics

Bottling a model ship is the traditional pastime of sailors. Wonder if it is that way even today?
We have sailed away, and cruising at high seas, oh
Another lonely day, with no one here but we, oh
More loneliness than anyone could take
Just that emptiness and the waves and wake, oh

I'll try that age-old trick pass the time
I'll try that age-old trick pass the time
I hope that someday I get
I hope that someday I get
I hope that someday I get
Building ship in bottle, yeah
Building ship in bottle, yeah

A month has passed since I carved the hull
I've tried to rig the masts but it's a mess full
It's much more difficult than I thought
So many hours I've toiled, worked, cursed and fought

I'll try that age-old trick pass the time
I'll try that age-old trick pass the time
I hope I'd someday finish
I hope I'd someday finish
I hope I'd someday finish
Building ship in bottle, yeah
Building ship in bottle, yeah
Building ship in bottle, yeah
Building ship in bottle, yeah

Woke up this morning, now ready is this lass -
A brig on full sails trapped inside the glass
I'm tired and fed up, my hair has grown thin
And I cannot wait to do it again!

I'll try that age-old trick pass the time
I'll try that age-old trick pass the time
I hope I'd someday again
I hope I'd someday again
I hope I'd someday again
Build a ship in bottle, yeah
Build a ship in bottle, yeah
Build a ship in bottle, yeah
Build a ship in bottle, yeah

Bottling all the sailing ships..
Bottling all the sailing ships..
Bottling all the sailing ships..
Bottling all the sailing ships..

Welcome back, Sussana! With today's decline in craftsmanship, you'll be lucky to find someone who makes ships in a bag! Fine job as usual. ;D

It's fascinating, how they do that - must take the steady hand, patience, and skill of a brain surgeon - unique theme

Came here via the 'Random' feature, Susanna. I really enjoyed this one, and it was a really unique idea for a parody :)
