"All hail the Bloodboat!" "A tribute to the mighty seafaring vessel." "The crashing sound of flatware." "Came deep from her cargo bay onto the wharf." "The Bloodboat!" "The Bloodboat!" "The Bloodboat! Returning triumphantly to port!"
"Mighty pump, do not fail! Push the water, let me sail!" Cries the engine man On the S.S. Bloodboat A boat is like a beating heart Inside out Blood is like the ocean
"The Bloodboat...." "A tearful salute." "The Bloodboat." "A voyage these young sailors will always remember." "The Bloodboat."
"Engine man, we're too slow Two days out, three to go" Cries the ship captain On the S.S. Bloodboat Fancy silver in the hold Must be sold When the ship comes to rest
"Push the throttle up, Mr. Engine Man. Push the throttle up," Says the captain
Forty tons of cutlery Crushing her against the sea 'Til the hull is split And the Bloodboat flounders Down they spin, forks and knives Precious lives When the ship comes to rest
"Mighty pump, do not fail! Push the water, let me sail!"
