lyrics

There's a ghost haunting this ocean
like a fish with a dragons tale
This ain't just a bedtime story,
this ain't just a fairytale
Though no one has ever seen her,
every sailor knows her face
They say "Death will never get us,
we're protected by her grace"
I can hear them when they're lonely,
while they're laughing, as they drink
They gather round the fire
and all the pirates sing:

Hey mama, hey! No one dies alone
The salty lady stays when everybody's gone

They say once she was a lady,
she was once a sailors wife
but the sailor lost his way home
and the lady took her life.
In the northern stormy weather,
in each shot accross the bows
she awaits beneath the water
to collect her rotten souls
and they gather round the fire
and all the pirates sing:
"We're born to keep on sailing
between the devil and the deep blue sea"

Hey mama, hey! No one dies alone
The salty lady stays when everybody's gone
