   Bm 
We sail tonight for Singapore, we're all as mad as hatters here

I've fallen for a tawny moor, took off to the Land of Nod 
Em 
Drank with all the Chinamen, walked the sewers of Paris 
  Bm 
I danced along a colored wind, dangled from a rope of sand 
F#                      Bm 
You must say goodbye to me 

We sail tonight for Singapore, don't fall asleep while you're ashore 
Cross your heart and hope to die, when you hear the children cry 
Let marrowbone and cleaver choose, while making feet for children's shoes 
Through the alley, back from hell, when you hear that steeple bell 
You must say goodbye to me. 

Em                 Bm       Em                Bm 
Wipe him down with gasoline, till his arms are hard and mean 
     Em                 Bm              D 
From now on, boys, this iron boat's your home 
            F# 
So heave away, boys 

We sail tonight for Singapore, take your blankets from the floor 
Wash your mouth out by the door, the whole town's made of iron ore 
Every witness turns to steam, they all become Italian dreams 
Fill your pockets up with earth, get yourself a dollar's worth 
Away boys 
away boys, 
heave away 

The captain is a one-armed dwarf, he's throwing dice along the wharf 
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is King 
So take this ring 

We sail tonight for Singapore, we're all as mad as hatters here 
I've fallen for a tawny moor, took off to the Land of Nod 
Drank with all the Chinamen, walked the sewers of Paris 
I drank along a colored wind, I dangled from a rope of sand 
You must say goodbye to me
