Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call 
 
 7 7 -8 7 -6 7 -8 7 -6 
Wanted to sail upon your waters 
 
 -5 7 7 -7 -6 6 
since I was three feet tall 
 
 5 6 -6 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 
You've seen it all, you've seen it all 
 
verse 2. 
Watched the men who rode you switch from sails to steam 
And in your belly you hold the treasures 
few have ever seen 
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream 
 
verse 3. 
Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late 
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder 
I'm an over-forty victim of fate 
Arriving too late, arriving too late 
 
verse 4. 
I've done a bit of smugglin', 
I've run my share of grass 
I made enough money to buy Miami, 
but I p***** it away so fast 
Never meant to last, never meant to last

I have been drunk now for over two weeks 
 
7 8 8 8 8 8 -8 -8 -8 -8 7 7 7 
I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks 
 
-8 7 7 -6 7 -8 7 7 -6 7 -8 7 
But I got to stop wishin', got to go fishin' 
 
 7 7 -6 7 7 -7 -6 6 
I'm down to rock bottom again

Just a few friends, just a few friends 
 
verse 5. 
I go for younger women, lived with several awhile 
Though I ran 'em away, they'd come back one day 
Still could manage to smile 
Just takes a while, just takes a while 
 
verse 6. 
Mother, mother ocean, after all the years I've found 
My occupational hazard being my occupation's 
just not around 
 
4 5 6 -6 -4 6 6 -6 -6 6 
I feel like I've drowned, gonna head uptown
