about

A song for September's first night out on the Perverse and Perilous Sea, and for all who love being out on the open water!

lyrics

Hey ho little boat
round about the world we go
Never headed home
la de doot n'dye day!

Keep on moving 'til we stop
name all the stars anew,
ring these islands round and round
under the rising moon.
I laugh for the freedom of a night at sea,
perilous though it may be.
Secrets, name, and history
Are sure to see me through.

Hey ho, little boat...

Keep on moving 'til we stop.
Here is my dress, my sail.
No longer locked upon the land
but free on the rolling waves.
I'll ring these islands round and round,
gonna tear the lonely places down.
Following the violet current now,
it's easy to be brave!

Hey ho, little boat...

Sharks and shoes and lantern glow,
Help me search for those I know.
Down in the dark where the waves won't go,
I'm bound to find my way.

I'll ring these islands round and round,
gonna tear the lonely places down!
Riding the violet current now,
It's easy to be brave!

Hey ho, little boat...
