Lyrics:Went to see the captain, strangest I could find,
Laid my proposition down, laid it on the
line.
I won't slave for beggar's pay, likewise gold and jewels,
But I would slave to learn
the way to sink your ship of fools.

Ship of fools on a cruel sea, ship of fools sail away
from me.
It was later than I thought when I first believed you,
Now I cannot share your
laughter, ship of fools.

Saw your first ship sink and drown, from rockin' of the
boat,
And all that could not sink or swim was just left there to float.
I won't leave you
drifting down, but woh it makes me wild,
With thirty years upon my head to have you call me
child.

Ship of fools on a cruel sea, ship of fools sail away from me.
It was later
than I thought when I first believed you,
Now I cannot share your laughter, ship of
fools.

The bottles stand as empty, as they were filled before.
Time there was and
plenty, but from that cup no more.
Though I could not caution all, I still might warn a
few:
Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools.

Ship of fools
on a cruel sea, ship of fools sail away from me.
It was later than I thought, when I first
believed you,
Now I cannot share your laughter, ship of fools.

It was later than I
thought when I first believed you,
Now I cannot share your laughter, ship of fools
