One fine day, early morning,
The story goes Maggie climbed on board.
The salt spray sprang at her warning.
An omen not to be ignored.

Here’s one for the ship in its glory.
Two for the captain and crew.
Three for the flowing bottle.
Four for the ocean blue.

It all began a short while later
Floating on the ocean deep.
The captain drank a health to someone
That someone drank up healthily.


Up on deck, that’s where she found them.
Not a man could stand no matter how they tried.
Drink in their hands, joy in their hearts.
Slurring their words as they cried...


Turn, turn how the vessel turned.
Round and round. No-one in command.
Up stepped Maggie with a sigh
And commandeered the ship safely to land.

Chorus x 2
And Maggie let’s not forget you.
