Arrogant Worms - Shipwreck Balladeer Lyrics

  • I have been since seventeen a shipwreck balladeer
  • Tragedy and misery are what makes my career
  • Watery graves are my stock and trade, but it's getting harder
  • For all the boats that now do float are returning safely to the harbour
  • There hasn't been a shipwreck scene since 1965
  • And I find I cry each time a crew returns alive
  • I only cheer when gales appear and threaten fresh disaster
  • They pass by, the boat survives, only my career's in tatters
  • They're building ships too good today, and I'm the one who suffers
  • They don't get rent from aft to stern and their halls never rupture
  • Not dashed on rocks and never tossed to heaven on a wave
  • You may think it well and good but my livelihood sails away
  • There once were found, twenty in town, who wrote about shipwrecks
  • When boats sank lots, just like rocks, 'twas good as it gets
  • But the golden ages passed away and I'm barely survivin'
  • The balladeers are dead I fear and workin' in advertisin'
  • They're building ships too good today and it's hurtin' me
  • Why can't even one poor soul fall into the dark sea
  • And be ripped apart by hungry sharks in a bloody spree
  • You may think it well and good, but my livelihood sails away
  • Oh the only tragedy left to sing about is me
  • That government bastard's been sent to take my job from me
  • That inspector's making sure the ships are seaworthy
  • He can try, no way will I ever give up hope
  • When he went by, I did pry a big hole in his boat
  • They're building ships too good today, so I helped one along
  • How sweet it is to once again hear the tortured song
  • Of a man afloat a sinking boat, who knows he will die today
  • You might think it bad not good, but my livelihood's here to stay
  • It's here to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
