Oceans deep 
Drifting as you sleep 
Up on the eternal sea 
A ship sails 

When your ship comes in 
Will you be ready to sail with the tide 
And when your ship comes in 
Will it be a galley full of slaves 
Or a sun streaked schooner 

You came so far 
Between the rocks and shoals 
In the blinding night 
A may day 

When your ship comes in 
Will you step on board with a smile 
Or will they have to pressgang you 
Will the flag that flies in the wind 
Say friend or foe 
Will you know 
Or bear the mark of a pirate bold 
With a treasure chest full of fool's gold 
Fool's gold 

When your ship comes in 
Don't try to pack your case with hopes and dreams 
It's all behind you now 
This ain't no Sunday cruise this time you 
don't choose your destination 
And will a silent wave carry you away 
Or will the storm crash down so cold 
I spent a lot of fool's gold 
Fool's gold 

Will you be ready when your ship comes in 
When your ship comes in 
Will you be ready to sail with the tide 
When your ship comes in 
Will you be ready when your ship comes in 
When your ship comes in 
Will you be ready to sail with a smile 
When your ship comes in
