Hush my little one don`t cry so You know your Daddy`s bound to go They took his pride They took his voice Don`t upset him now, don`t make a noise They said "You`re lucky son you've still got a choice" Last boat leaving
Don`t waste your tears It`s not as if I`m in chains I don`t want to go now, it would be better for You, too, if I don`t look back when we sail
Hush my dear, while I whisper it in your ear We`re not going to sail tonight We`re going to disappear And it feels like a punishment, but I don`t know what for Take care of your mother, son, it`s you that she adores `Cos no matter how long we sail we`ll never reach the shore Last boat leaving
So dry your tears It`s not as if I`m in chains When you go to school, son, you`ll read my story in history books Only they won`t mention my name
So hush now, my darling, my sweet little one I hope that you never have to do what I`ve done Do you know what I've done? Why I`m going away? On the last boat leaving this stinking town It`s the last boat leaving, it`s the last boat leaving
You've had my innocence, you've had my heartbreak You've taken the place where I once belonged Now what more can you take?
