lyrics

Lyrics:
They sure did a number on this one
It's a wreck beyond repair
Must have gone through a dreadful turmoil
It vents an eerie air
Mast broken in several places
And the hull is riddled with holes
Black sails torn like paper
A view that jars my soul

Below the deck we found a fortune of pure gold
Ingots and a crown, seemingly rather old
An ancient Aztec treasure cursed by a deadly spell
Best not to touch, else we might all go straight to Hell

(Like I said, something fell out of the sky
There was this hairy monster
It jumped off the ship, and then it was gone
And the hands, the hands!
Hands just sprouted all over me
and then everything went black
The soft touch of a woman
That thing is a... ghost ship!)

Ghost ship
But that's preposterous
Yes, Sir
There's no way that's a
Ghost ship
Do you expect me to believe that it's not a lie
Ghost ship
But that's preposterous
Aye, aye, Sir
There's no way that's a
Ghost ship
Do you expect me to believe this obvious jive

Commander, I am here to give you my report
Of statements from the men who seized it at their wharf
According to the seven shipwrights at their post
Well, they said... Well, they said...
They said they saw a ghost!

Ghost ship
But that's preposterous
Yes, Sir
There's no way that's a
Ghost ship
Do you expect me to believe that it's not a lie
Ghost ship
But that's preposterous
Aye, aye, Sir
There's no way that's a
Ghost ship
Do you expect me to believe this obvious jive

We did not find hide nor hair of the crew
And what's more, I hear talk of ghosts from the mechanics
The Commander himself did call it a ghost ship too
It is true, this is no ruse, it is a ghost ship
