Title and Author Unknown



A life on the ocean wave!
A home on the rolling deep!
Where the scattered waters rave,
and the winds their revels keep!
Like an eagle caged I pine,
on this dull unchanging shore.
Oh give me the flashing brine!
The spray and the tempest roar!

The spray and the tempest roar!
The spray and the tempest roar!

Once more on the deck I stand,
Of my swift gliding craft;
Set sail--farewell to the land,
The gale follows far abaft.
We shoot through the sparkling foam,
Like an ocean-bird set free;
Like the ocean-bird, our home
We'll find far out at sea.

We'll find far out at sea.
We'll find far out at sea.

The land is no longer in view,
The clouds have begun to frown;
But with a stout vessel and crew,
We'll say, let the storms come down!
And the song of our hearts shall be,
While the winds and the waters?ve,
A life on the heaving sea,
A home on the bounding wave

A home on the bounding wave
A home on the bounding wave
