My Ship and I

O it's I that am the captain of a tidy little ship,
     Of a ship that goes a sailing on the pond;
And my ship it keeps a-turning  all around and all about;
But when I'm a little older, I shall find the secret out
     How to send my vessel sailing on beyond.

For I mean to grow a little as the dolly at the helm,
     And the dolly I intend to come alive;
And with him beside to help me, it's a-sailing I shall go,
It's a-sailing on the water, when the jolly breezes blow
     And the vessel goes a dive-dive-dive.

O it's then you'll see me sailing through the rushes and the reeds,
     And you'll hear the water singing at the prow;
For beside the dolly sailor, I'm to voyage and explore,
To land upon the island where no dolly was before,
     And to fire the penny cannon in the bow.
