The designers of the Arkansas
Were inspired to choose a form that was
The exact dimensions and the shape
Of the state whose name she bore

Yes, the ship was shaped like Arkansas
And the hull was formed without a flaw
Every detail had been reproduced
On a scale of 1:1

I was on the coast of Arkansas
When I saw her colors from the shore
And I sadly waved my hankerchief
As the ship began to sing:

"I'm the ship that's shaped like Arkansas
And my hull was formed without a flaw
Every detail has been reproduced
On a scale of 1:1

Avast me hearties!
A blimey state!
Ahoy there!
Avast there!
Ahoy there me hearties!"

When the rising tide engulfs the shore
And the waves roll over Arkansas
Will the ship return to anchor there
And replace the sunken state?

For the ship was shaped like Arkansas
And the hull was formed without a flaw
Every detail had been reproduced
On a scale of 1:1
