My attempt to create a traditional song.

lyrics

We the sailors
We sail through the sea
We're the whale swallowed
And we've got no money
We've got no broad
At least until we reach the next port

And we the sailors, we
We fight against squids
We fight against the urge for you and me
And we've got no time
We've got no booze
And we've got nothing to remind us that

We once were here, in this earth
This earth beheld by the lord and his son
Oh lord, please help me
For I've said I've been here for so, so, so long
I can't
I can't remember the face of ma no more
She probably doesn't remember me either
She's probably under her burial ground
I can't
I can't even tell her I love her.

We the sailors
We sail through the sea
We're the whale swallowed
And we've got no money
We've got no broad
At least until we reach the next port

So I'm throwing away this letter I have
Deep down the ocean where the fishes get born and dead.
