The Lyrics

We had a quarrel, a lover's spat - I said I'm sorry, but my hubby ain't coming back...
My bonnie goes solo at ocean
He sails all alone at the sea
My bonnie left me with a notion -
At least he ain't cheating on me!

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

Oh we had a fight and commotion
I cheated my bonnie with friend
My bonnie then headed to ocean
Said he'd rather face storms and winds

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

My bonnie went ballistic with fission
He said he would sail 'round the Earth
He took our yacht without my permission
And said he would leave me in dearth

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

My bonnie went out to the sorties
He took all our money and cash
And he's now South at Roaring Forties
He emptied our accounts and stash

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

One night as I lay on my pillow
I got phoned from Guadalcanal -
My bonnie drinks rum under willow
And said he won't miss me at all

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

My bonnie is facing the perils
The pirates and storms and wild seas
My bed is so empty and sterile
My sex life has pretty much ceased

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

Now blow the winds o'er the ocean
And carry him 'round the Cape Horn -
Give him some wild locomotion
and make him regret he was born!

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

The winds have blown over the ocean
My bonnie's at northeastern trades -
He's tanned and he spreads that sun lotion
He's wearing those mirror-like shades

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

So all ladies, listen this warning
from this time now on you to learn
Don't cheat with your dear loving darling
He'll leave you, God knows when'll return!

Oh bring back, oh bring back
oh bring back my yacht now to me, to me
Chase him, seize him
Now get him and bring back to me

LOL at the locomotion verse.

Here's a stack of 555 batteries. That should help solve the last line of verse 6 problem!

*smile* We purchased a yacht one year ago, and we did some really wild sailing last summer - we logged some 1100 nautical miles, and twice survived Force 8 storm at high seas. We are actually planning one day to leave for good, set sails, and head to the Waterworld. But no, we will not head to the Roaring Forties. And the Cape Horn was a nasty place already during the era of the windjammers - and it has a nasty reputation still.

Easily one of my favorites today. I laughed. I cried. I got seasick.
Nice storytelling.
