    As far as your eye can see,
    Men, women, and baby slaves
    Coming to the land of Liberty,
    Where life's design is already made
    So young and so strong
    They're just waiting to be saved

    Lord, I'm so tired
    And I know you're tired too,
    Look over the horizon, see the sun
    Shining down on you

    Can't you feel the motion of the ocean,
    Can't you feel the cold wind blowing by?
    There's so many fish in the sea,

    We're just, we're just, we're just
    We're just masts?
    Riding on the waves
    the waves
    we are
    riding on the waves

    Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!
    Ship Ahoy, now yeah
    Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!

    They're coming by the hundreds
    Coming by the thousands, too
    Look over the horizon, see the sun
    Shining down on you
