Text písně

I viewed in my presence
My hand on my forehead,
And sighting the liners
Of mad merchant seamen
In search of the living,
Or the spices of China.

Lucy walked gently
Between the damp barrels,
And shut out my eyes
With the width of her fingers,
Said she'd guessed the number
Of bales in the back-room.

While the sea-gulls were screaming
Lucy was eating;
Then we hauled up our colours
The way The Mother had told us,
And together we just watched the sails.

„Lucy,“ I said
In a passage of cotton kegs,
„Can we hold hands,
I'm sure that it's warmer?“
Then the gulls ate the crumbs
Of Lucy's sandwich.
