Listen to the Winds
the waters smash against her hual
but the ship is strong in strength and numbers.
Nothings easy for ah sailor at sea.
Nothings easy for fireman on board the ship.
nothings easy for an engineer down in the engine room.
talking to the boilers that light the fire.
watching those boilers explode and those fire flames force out.
the shafts down in engineering turn rapidly all the way out to sea
those propellers spin. Forcing the ship to 50 knots
full speed ahead shipmate.
The the life of sailor in the seventh Fleet.
