I am the captain and I have been told
That tomorrow we land and my ship has been sold
Now losing this boat is worth scarce a mention
I think of the crew most of all the first ensign
For all we learned the sea

Guiding a ship, it takes more than your skill
It's the compass inside, it's the strength of your will
The first ensign watched as tempests all tried me
I sang in the wind as if God were beside me
For all we learned the sea

You take the wheel one more time
Like I showed you
We've reached the strait
Once even I could not go through

I am the captain and I have been told
But I am not shaken, I am eight years old
And you are still young but you'll understand
That the stars of the sea are the same for the land
And we came to learn the sea
