Went down strummin' thunder sound
All started singin' as the ship went down
Everybody knew where the boat was found
To the shipwreck ledger on the lost and found

Captain said to the fisherman's daughter
Hold your breath we're goin' underwater
You can't stay here anymore
But if you jump out now you can make it to shore

He took off without saying goodbye
Most of them folk never made it alive
The ones who did only just survived
But they told that story till the day they died

Well the captain's lover begged him to come
But the captain cried "My work here ain't done"
She understood him and she savoured the kiss
Yeah we all know the captain goes down with the ship

Well the very last thing that she heard him say
Was "don't look back as you're swimmin' away"
Destiny saw the captain drown
He sleeps with the fishes and the mermaids now

Well the fisherman's daughter swam along
The salty sea sucked the captain's bones
Nobody knows if she ever got home
But her heart's in the locker of Davy Jones

Well the captain's lover begged him to come
But the captain cried "My work here ain't done"
She understood him and she savoured the kiss
Yeah we all know the captain goes down with the ship
