Oh, message in a bottle, please come and rescue me
Oh message in a bottle, come take me out to sea
With rum and fun, oh sail and spray, what adventures there could be!
If only, if only, my message and bottle ,would come and rescue me
what a life would await, were I not bound by my fate, to temptresses, mistresses, brawlers and priests
Oh how high and mighty they will all be! when at last my bottle calls me to sea
i will not falter nor will my son or my daughter, when my bottle comes for me
Gladly I go, to the maiden I know, the shining, great, blue Sea
