Je suis né dans les chantiers japonais
En vérité, j'appartiens aux Américains
Une filiale d'une compagnie navale
Dont j'ai oublié l'adresse à Los Angeles

Cent vingt mille tonnes de pétrole brut!
Cent vingt mille tonnes
Dans le Torrey Canyon
Le Torrey Canyon

Aux Bermudes, à trente degré d'latitude
Se tient la Barracuda Tanker Corporation
Son patron m'a donné en location
À l'Union Oil Company de Californie

Cent vingt mille tonnes de pétrole brut!
Cent vingt mille tonnes
Dans le Torrey Canyon
Le Torrey Canyon

Si je bats pavillon du Liberia
Le captain et les marins sont tous italiens
Le mazout dont on m'a rempli les soutes
C'est celui du consortium British Petroleum

Cent vingt mille tonnes espèces de brutes!
Cent vingt mille tonnes
Dans le Torrey Canyon!
Le Torrey Canyon, le Torrey Canyon!
Le Torrey Canyon, le Torrey Canyon!
Le Torrey Canyon, le Torrey Canyon!
