East India Company (We Be Sailin')
B.W. Stevenson (C)opr. 1975 - Prophecy Publishing, Inc. (ASCAP)

Well, we’re sailin’ out at midnight on the East India Company.
Bring a flask of wine, a wheel of cheese, and the stuff to make you sneeze.
Oh, Captain, Captain, those winds they feel just right,
and we’ll be talkin’ to the dolphins by this time tomorrow night.

This town don’t like me and the police are after me,
I’ve come about as far as I can without sailin’ the deep blue sea.
Got a lady in India, Lord, she can set me free.
We’re the importers of oriental spices, silks, calicos, sugar, and ivory.

Well, we’re sailin’ out at midnight on the East India Company.
Bring a flask of wine, a wheel of cheese, and the stuff to make you sneeze.
Oh, Captain, Captain, those winds feel right to me.
We’re the importers of oriental spices, silks, calicos, sugar, and ivory.
