Through storm and grief,
Hit many a rock and many a reef,

That the human race was a special freight
So they had to learn to navigate.

Better be mated on this here cruise.Why

All the kettle was smashed and 40 cranes.

What is bad for the bow aint good for the stern.
If a fire took place in China today
Pearl Harbor just gonna blaze away.
Name the song.
