Oh captain tell me the truth
Does my sailor sail with you
No he does not sail with me
He sleeps on the bottom of the sea

What did the deep sea say,
Tell me what did the deep sea say
Well it moaned and it groaned
And it splashed and it foamed
And it rolled on it's weary way

Well he promised to write to me
But his promise he never kept true
Never a word from my sailor have I heard
Since he sailed on that ocean blue

What did the deep sea say,
What did the deep sea say
it moaned and it groaned
And it splashed and it foamed
And it rolled on it's weary way

A beautiful rose every day
A place on the crest of the waves
Said take it please and let the pedals fall
Upon his watery grave

What did the deep sea say,
Tell me what did the deep sea say
It moaned and it groaned
And it splashed and it foamed
And it rolled on it's weary way

Oh what did the deep sea say,
What did the deep sea say
It moaned and it groaned
And it splashed and it foamed
And it rolled on it's weary way

what did that deep sea say,
tell me what did that deep sea say
It moaned and it groaned
And it splashed and it foamed
And it rolled on it's weary way
