Wellerman - The Longest Johns 「Tekst」 - Hrvatski prijevod

There once was a ship that put to sea
And the name of that ship was the Billy o' Tea
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow (Huh!)


Wellerman - The Longest Johns 「Tekst」

There once was a ship that put to sea
And the name of that ship was the Billy o' Tea
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow (Huh!)

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 2]
She had not been two weeks from shore
When down on her, a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore
He'd take that whale in tow (Hah!)

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 3]


Before the boat had hit the water
The whale's tail came up and caught her
All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her
When she dived down below (Huh!)
[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 4]
No line was cut, no whale was freed
The Captain's mind was not on greed
But he belonged to the whaleman's creed
She took that ship in tow (Huh!)

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 5]
For forty days, or even more
The line went slack, then tight once more


All boats were lost, there were only four
But still that whale did go

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
[Verse 6]
As far as I've heard, the fight's still on
The line's not cut and the whale's not gone
The Wellerman makes his a regular call
To encourage the Captain, crew, and all

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go


Wellerman - The Longest Johns 「Tekst」 - Hrvatski prijevod


Bio jednom jedan brod koji je u more


I ime tog broda bio je Billy o”Tea
U vjetrovi teško, njoj klanjaju umočen dolje
Blow me terorizirati dječaka, udarac (ha!)

[Hor]
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići

[Redak 2]
Nije bila dva tjedna od obale
Kada se na nju, pravi kit rodila
Kapetan pozvao sve ruke i zakleo
On bi se taj kit u tow (Hah!)

[Hor]
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići

[Redak 3]
Prije nego što je brod udario u vodu
Kitovoj rep došao i uhvatio


Svi ruke u stranu, harpooned i nju borio
Kada je zaronio ispod (Huh!)
[Hor]
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići

[Redak 4]
Ne linija je rezati, nema kita je oslobođen
The Captain um nije bio na pohlepu
No, on je pripadao lovac na kitove Creed
Ona je taj brod u tow (Huh!)

[Hor]
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići

[Redak 5]
Za četrdeset dana, ili čak i više
Linija ode zatišje, a onda čvrsto još jednom
Svi brodovi su izgubili, bilo je samo četiri
Ali ipak da kit išlo



[Hor]
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići
[Redak 6]
Što se tiče čuo sam, borba je i dalje na
Linija ne rezati i kit nije otišao
Wellerman čini njegov redoviti poziv
Poticati kapetana i posade, a svi

[Hor]
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići
Uskoro neka Wellerman doći
Da nam donijeti šećer i čaj i rum
Jednog dana, kad je učinio tonguin'
Mi ćemo uzeti našu ostaviti i otići
