    Rogers Stan The Wreck Of The Athens Queen текст песни

    The Wreck Of The Athens Queen

    We were drinking down to Reedy’s house

    When first we heard the blow

    It seemed to come from Ripper Rock

    So boldly forth we go

    And, sure enough, a rusty tub

    Could just be barely seen

    As her stern was high up in the air

    We made out "Athens Queen"

    Oh, the lovely Athens Queen

    Me boys, I must remind you,

    There’s a bottle left inside

    So let us go and have a few

    And wait until low tide

    And if the sea’s not claimed her

    When the glasses are licked clean

    We will then set forth some dories, lads,

    And see what may be seen

    On the lovely Athens Queen

    Some songs and old tall stories then

    Came out to pass the time

    Nor could a single bottle

    Keep us all until low tide

    And so it was before we left

    The house we were at sea

    So I scarcely can remember

    How we made the Athens Queen

    Oh, the lovely Athens Queen

    Oh the waves inside me belly

    Were as high as those outside

    And though I’m never seasick,

    I lost dinner overside

    T’was well there was no crew to save

    For we’d have scared ‘em green

    We could scarcely keep ourselves

    From falling off the Athens Queen

    Oh, the lovely Athens Queen

    Well, Reedy goes straight down below

    And comes up with a cow

    "Hello", I said, "now what would you

    Be wantin’ with that now?"

    "You’ll never take a cow home

    In a dory on such seas!"

    "Well me son, he says I’ve always fancied

    Fresh cream in me tea

    ‘Fore the lovely Athens Queen."

    I headed for the galley, then,

    As I was rather dry

    And glad I was to get there quick

    For what should I espy?

    Oh what a shame it would have been

    For to lose it all at sea

    Forty cases of the best Napoleon

    Brandy ever seen

    On the lovely Athens Queen

    I loaded twenty cases, boys,

    Then headed for the shore

    Unloaded them as quick as that

    And then pulled back for more

    Smith was pulling for the shore

    But he could scarce be seen

    Under near two hundred chickens

    And a leather couch of green

    From the lovely Athens Queen

    Well, here’s to all good salvagers

    Likewise to Ripper Rock

    And to Napoleon brandy of which

    Now we have much stock

    We eat a lot of chicken

    And sit on a couch of green

    And we wait for Ripper Rock

    To claim another Athens Queen

    Oh, the lovely Athens Queen
