Dan Bull - Sunless Sea lyrics

Oh! Oh! Oh the Londoners come to see the unterzee. They flock to the docks and watch the boxes and stocks That are dropped from atop off the Steamers and frigates and dreadnaughts and cutters and cruisers and corvettes and yachts. Each and every of 'em a story has got. Here's ours: T'was dark when we parted the port And started our voyage to far, distant shores. This tiny tub's not the fastest for sure But I'd rather have her than no transport at all From humble beginnings I come for your winnings There's always a calm before there's a storm So batten the hatches and pull down your patches We're pa**ing through Gaider's Mourn 'till we find the dawn Smell the sea breeze, a cold chill, Neptune's deep freeze Now I'm not sure of the maritime law down here So we'll do as we please We sail the sea (We sail the sea) The Sunless Sea, The Sunless Sea We sail the sea We plunder deep and run from creatures from beneath the sunless sea (The sunless sea) We sail the sea, The Sunless Sea, we sail the sea We plunder deep and run from creatures from beneath The Sunless Sea Tides are lapping on the side, rising damp. Eyes widen with fright, light the lamp. No mind how cramped, we will ride 'till we find any island in sight Now camp. Is that a lighthouse lamp or a giant crab? Is it a shark, or can we disembark? Oh. Rats. Better sink the barge, Although I'm not a whale I am deffo living large. You're a landlubber I was born in sand blubber's in my blood But I look damn good when I scrub up any port in a storm, tear the pub up Three months at sea means there's gonna be some hubbub We sail the sea (We sail the sea) The Sunless Sea, The Sunless Sea We sail the sea We plunder deep and run from creatures from beneath the sunless sea (The sunless sea) We sail the sea, The Sunless Sea, we sail the sea We plunder deep and run from creatures from beneath The Sunless Sea When we've each had our fill of the menu We head out the venue Prepared to continue. Turning that lard into muscle and sinew Discover just how much swashbuckle is in you When you're smuggling human souls Whose tombs are cold You lose control. You're ravenous too, the food is mouldy, too damn salty. The deep hue of this blue's unholy Fool I told ye Skippers who consume their crews are lonely. And fuel is low, we've used the coal, so I'm cruising home We sail the sea (We sail the sea) The Sunless Sea, The Sunless Sea We sail the sea We plunder deep and run from creatures from beneath the sunless sea (The sunless sea) We sail the sea, The Sunless Sea, we sail the sea We plunder deep and run from creatures from beneath The Sunless Sea
