The Ballad of Captain T

Captain T is on the bridge the ship departs to cross the ocean he'll make this liner great again he boasts of his devotion


Captain T says this ship is the best the greatest, everybody says they tell him its the biggest ever the most beautiful of ships it is


As we depart we hear of ice bergs in the latest weather reports but then Captain T speaks fiery don't you worry he retorts


Heard the officers arguing while the ship is running full steam ahead other vessels that hit the ice bergs reported quite a number dead


But captain T says do not worry the icebergs will just go away They're just a hoax don't you see to keep our beautiful ship at bay


Captain T touts anti-freeze as it keeps everything ice free he suggest for us to drink it so that we may not freeze at sea


In other ships they now must wear life vests and they exercise the boats here in ours we're free to smoke right on the open fuel depot


Captain T now tells us there wouldn't be ice bergs if we just wouldn't look told the outlooks to turn in for the night to protect the course he took


We pick up speed as the party resumes and we don't wanna see that the icebergs loom Captain T says 99 of hundred are fine then i feel a whiff of cold air in my spine


I hear a loud crack in the hull as the cold ice slices through our wall And a chorus of those that perish calls him Captain T your recklessness it kills us all


And the souls of those that perish cry out your recklessness kills us all And their voices they do accuse Captain T he carelessly sinks us all


And a chorus of those that perish your incompetence kills us all Captain T your vanity kills us all your recklessness kills us all


And the souls of those that perish cry out your vanity kills us all And their voices they do accuse Captain T he carelessly sinks us all


Only cares for his own image nothing matters but that golden calf And our voices do accuse Captain T you recklessly sink us all


And the souls of those that perish cry out your vanity kills us all And their voices they do accuse Captain T he carelessly sinks us all


And the souls of those that perish cry out your recklessness kills us all And their voices they do accuse Captain T he carelessly sinks us all
