ANDY PARTRIDGE lyrics - Ship Trapped In The Ice

ANDY PARTRIDGE
"Ship Trapped In The Ice"

Hurry and see, hurry and see
The ship trapped in the ice
Hurry and see, hurry and see
The frost on the rigging's superficially nice
The captain sold his marbles and the crew lost theirs at dice
Hurry and see, hurry and see
The ship trapped in the ice

How can we free, how can we free
The ship trapped in the ice
How can we free, how can we free
They sailed in the shallows now they've paid the price
The captain drank the champagne but it tasted like Old Spice
How can we free, how can we free
The ship trapped in the ice

And I can only see this wreck with the aid of a drink and a mirror
She may look scenic from the shore but you don't want to come any nearer

The captain's box of butterflies have all hatched out as lice
Hurry and see, hurry and see
The ship trapped in the ice

And I can only see this wreck with the aid of a drink and a mirror
She may look scenic from the shore but you don't want to come any nearer

How can this be, how can this be
The ship trapped in the ice
How can this be, how can this be
The frozen contract got 'em gripped like a vice
The captain dreams of flying but he's oh so scared of heights
Oh how can this be, cause Mama it's me!
The ship trapped in the ice
