Well sweetness, I love it when you wrap me up
I'm a drowning man for the third time
Twenty-one gun salute in your flag of mercy
Preparing my body for a burial at sea

[Chorus]
So put your tongue in my ear
Through this veil of tears
Whisper what's gone wrong? gone wrong?
The world, the world she's a Babylon

Coming in from the coast it's a bad nor'easter
Waves banging rocks with migraine vengeance
Build up the tower, unlocking the secrets
The pride of man is so contentious

[Chorus]

This is no pleasure cruise in the South Pacific
I'm bailing ice water up to my neck
***anic's captain said that God couldn't sink her
You might say he learned a healthy respect

[Chorus]
