Lyrics Wooden Ships

If you smile at me
I will understand
'Cos that is something
Everybody everywhere does in the same language
I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side
There's just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please who won
Say can I have some of your purple berries
Yes, I've been eating them
For six or seven weeks now haven't got sick once
Probably keep us both alive
Wooden ships on the water very free
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin' about very free and easy
Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving
You don't need us
Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving
You don't need dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee-dee dee-dee need us
And it's a fair wind blowin' warm out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I'll set a course and go
