Semi-Wondrous Boat Ride - Lyrics

Around the world and home again
That's the sailor's way
(Faster, faster)

There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There's no knowing where we're rowing
Or which way the river's flowing

Is it raining, is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a-blowing?

Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of hell a-glowing?
Is the grisly reaper mowing?

Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they're certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing

Stop the boat
We're here

Writer(s): anthony newley, leslie bricusse
