Waiting For My Ship To Come In

Verse 1:

Mama told me every day of my life

when you grow up you’ll have a job and a wife

But don’t you worry one day your ship will come in.

 

Verse 2:

She was right at least part of the way

I had to work on my own wedding day

Now me and my baby are waiting for my ship to come in.

 

CHORUS:

Every morning at a half past ten

I call the harbor and I talk to my friend

Mister harbor master tell me has my ship come in?

 

Verse 3:

Is she anchored off the coast of Maine

and does the Captain even know my name?

I’ll just keep working and waiting for my ship to come in.

 

Guitar Solo:

 

CHORUS:

Every morning at a half past ten

I call the harbor and I talk to my friend

Mister harbor master tell me has my ship come in?

 

Verse 4:

I finally saw my ship on CNN,

Somali pirates were towing her in

I had to face it, my ship may never come in.

 

Verse 5:

When I came from work today

my wife was singing while our little girl played

I’d never noticed my ship’s already come in

Mister harbor master I won’t be calling again
