Lyrics and Transcript

Greg: Well everybody, we got very special friend to meet now. His name is Tim Finn. Hi, Tim.

Tim: Hi, Greg.

Greg: Now where are you from, Tim?

Tim: I come from New Zealand or as the Marion people use to call it Aoteroa.

Greg: And what does that mean?

Tim: It means land of the long white cloud.

Greg: A-ha! And you've written a song for us today.

Tim: Yeah, we've written a song for the Captain, actually. It's called "Six Months in a Leaky Boat".

Greg: Wow, Six Months in a Leaky Boat! Well everybody, join in singing and dancing as we sing "Six Months in a Leaky Boat".

“Ahoy there me hearties. Come for a trip with me,

Captain Feathersword, on my friendly pirate ship.

Whoah ho ho, but look out – its leaking”

When the captain was a young boy

He wanted to sail around the world

“That’s the life for me, whoah ho

Living on the sea. Whoah ho ho ho”

The spirit of a sailor, sailing all around the globe

“Round and round. I’m a buccaneer. Whoah ho

I’ll acknowledge no frontier. Ho ho ho ho”

I remember you by, thunderclap in the sky

Lightening flash, tempers flare

‘Round Cape Horn if you dare

I just spent six months in a leaky boat

Lucky just to keep afloat

La da da da ahh dad a do do do-doh

Aoteroa (“Oh look, there’s New Zealand”)

Rugged individual

Glisten like a pearl (“Oh so shiny") Whoah ho”)

At the bottom of the world

(“Oh, down under. Yeah”)

The tyranny of distance (“Such a long way”)

Didn’t stop the buccaneer

“So why should it stop me?

Whoah ho. I’m sailing to be free”

Ah c’mon all you lads

Let’s forget and forgive

There’s a world to explore (“Let’s go exploring”)

Tales to tell back on shore

I just spent six months in a leaky boat (“Whoah ho”)

Six months in a leaky boat (“Whoah ho ho”)

La da da da ahh dad a do do do-doh

‘Come on now me hearties. Let’s do a pirate dance

Yo ho ho. Who ho ho. Oh, bend your knees now

That’s right. Whoah ho ho

Now you’re really dancing

Ho ho ho ho. Oh well done me hearties”

Ah c’mon all you lads

Let’s forget and forgive

There’s a world to explore (“Oh lets explore”)

Tales to tell back on shore

I just spent six months in a leaky boat (“Whoah ho”)

Nothing to it, leaky boat (“Oh no”)

La da da da ahh dad a do do do-doh
