Swallows

The swallows, martins, and saw-wings, or Hirundinidae, are a family of passerine songbirds found around the world on all continents, including occasionally in Antarctica. Highly adapted to aerial feeding, they have a distinctive appearance. The term "swallow" is used colloquially in Europe as a synonym for the barn swallow. Around 90 species of Hirundinidae are known, divided into 19 genera, with the greatest diversity found in Africa, which is also thought to be where they evolved as hole-nesters. They also occur on a number of oceanic islands. A number of European and North American species are long-distance migrants; by contrast, the West and South African swallows are nonmigratory.

Jack, climb back in the hull 
Stow the sails and oars 
Battened down 
Watertight 
Unsinkable boat 

Watch the pitch and roll 
Turn the rudder slow 
Throw the drogues 
Anchor down 
Unsinkable boat 

Tell ‘em all night in 
We’ll ride this out a hull 
Morning comes 
Chart our course 
Unsinkable boat 

Live another day 
Despite the wind and rain 
Change our tack 
Sail on 
Unsinkable boat 

This watch is getting long 
Oh, I’m seeing faces in the waves 
Counting bodies in the stars 

Slow moving, slow motion, slow moving tide 
Still water, deep water, bone chilling dive 

Jack, this header’s moving slow 
Full and by we’ll go 
Turn the sails 
To the wind 
Unsinkable boat 

Let it go and haul 
A westward lift is blowing
Pass the pipe 
Down the grog 
Let’s ride it on home 

This watch is getting long 
Oh, I’m seeing faces in the waves 
Counting bodies in the stars 	

Slow moving, slow motion, slow moving tide 
Still water, deep water, bone chilling dive 

Time killing time killing 
Sail the ocean blue 
Time killing time killing 
Under the new moon 

Time killing time killing 
Sail the ocean blue 
Time killing time killing 
Under the new moon 

Jack, polish all the brass 
Swab the decks and brig 
Cut the rigs 
Tie the ropes 
Unsinkable boat 

Grab the holy stone 
Scrub down to the bone 
Man the yards 
Watertight 
Unsinkable boat 

Lock the wheelhouse door 
Let’s get this vessel moored 
Clean the grave 
Piss and spit 
Unsinkable boat 

Climb back in the hull 
Stow the sails and oars 
Battened down 
Watertight 
Unsinkable boat
