Shiver me timbers

by Tom Waits


I´m leavin´ my fam´ly
Leavin´ all my friends
My body´s at home
But my heart´s in the wind
Where the clouds are like headlines
On a new front page sky
My tears are salt water
And the moon´s full and high

And I know Martin Eden´s
Gonna be proud of me
And many before me
Who´ve been called by the sea
To be up in the crow´s nest
Singin´ my say
Shiver me Timbers
´Cause I´m a-sailin´ away

And the fog´s liftin´
And the sand´s shiftin´
I´m driftin´ on out
Ol´ Captain Ahab
He ain´t got nothin´ on me, now.
So swallow me, don´t follow me
I´m trav´lin´ alone
Blue water´s my daughter
´n I´m gonna skip like a stone

So please call my missus
Gotta tell her not to cry
´Cause my goodbye is written
By the moon in the sky
Hey and nobody knows me
I can´t fathom my stayin´
Shiver me timbers
´Cause I´m a-sailin´ away

And the fog´s liftin´
And the sand´s shiftin´
I´m driftin´ on out
Ol´ Captain Ahab
He ain´t got nothin´ on me
So come and swallow me, follow me
I´m trav´lin´ alone
Blue water´s my daughter
´n I´m gonna skip like a stone

And I´m leavin´ my family
Leavin´ all my friends
My body´s at home
But my heart´s in the wind
Where the clouds are like headlines
Upon a new front page sky
And shiver me timbers
´Cause I´m a-sailin´ away
