I believe submarines Underneath deep blue seas
Saw the flags: Japanese No one will believe me

Ran back to the town bar
And I told the people how
I had seen the submarine And everyone laughed aloud 
I did spy periscopes Dead of night on the eastern coast
The police made them jokes Told me I'd seen a ghost  Everyone thinks I'm a liar
No one knows the truth If it was a bigger fire
I would be on the roof
 Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay
(Let me go!)
No one trusts what I say
(I don't know!)
Oh my God, no one paid
(Attention!) Overnight my hair turned gray
(Oh oh oh!)

In the end it boils down to credibility I had none, so I will die with the secrets of the sea

(Submarine! Can't find me!)
