Lyrics
Ships Are Sailing

Got a bus from Busarus in the rain
I'm coming back to see you once again
Faces haven't changed they're all the same
Looking out the window at the rain

I left my home when I was seventeen
For seven years my face has not been seen
A sailing the five oceans I have been
I have followed in your footsteps Mr Steen

(ch) And now I'm back at last to settle down
You've got a bungalow at the edge of town
And jobs they are quite plentiful these days
But ships are sailing in my mind always

I know these faces but they don't know me
I'm a stranger but my world is on the sea
O thank God I went away and traveled far
From eyes that never dreamed upon a star

Got a bus from Busarus in the rain
A man gets out walks down an empty lane
back with the folks I knew so well
But the devil will soon guide me back to hell
(ch)
