Wellerman - The Longest Johns 「Tekst」 - Hrvatski prijevod

There once was a ship that put to sea
And the name of that ship was the Billy o' Tea
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow (Hah!)


Wellerman - The Longest Johns 「Tekst」

There once was a ship that put to sea
And the name of that ship was the Billy o' Tea
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow (Hah!)

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 2]
She had not been two weeks from shore


When down on her, a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore
He'd take that whale in tow (Hah!)

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 3]
Before the boat had hit the water
The whale's tail came up and caught her
All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her


When she dived down below (Huh!)

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 4]
No line was cut, no whale was freed
The Captain's mind was not on greed
But he belonged to the whaleman's creed
She took that ship in tow (Huh!)


[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 5]
For forty days, or even more
The line went slack, then tight once more
All boats were lost, there were only four
But still that whale did go

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come


To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

[Verse 6]
As far as I've heard, the fight's still on
The line's not cut and the whale's not gone
The Wellerman makes his a regular call
To encourage the Captain, crew, and all

[Chorus]
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done


We'll take our leave and go
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go


Wellerman - The Longest Johns 「Tekst」 - Hrvatski prijevod


Jednom je bio brod koji je stavio na more
I ime tog broda bio je čaj Billy O '
Vjetrovi su mu tvrdili, njezin je luk spustio
Puhati, ja siledžija, udarac (hah!)

[Chorus]
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum


Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići

[Stih 2]
Nije bila dva tjedna od obale
Kada je dolje na njoj, desno provrt kitova
Kapetan je nazvao sve ruke i zakleo se
Uzet bi taj kit u vuču (hah!)

[Chorus]
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum
Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići



[Stih 3]
Prije nego što je brod pogodio vodu
Kitov rep je došao i uhvatio je
Sve ruke u stranu, harpuned i borila se
Kad se spustila ispod (HUH!)

[Chorus]
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum
Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići

[Stih 4]


Nije bilo rez, nijedan kit nije bio oslobođen
Kapetanski um nije bio na pohlepi
Ali pripadao je potomskom vjeri
Uzela je taj brod u vuču (ha!)

[Chorus]
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum
Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići

[Stih 5]
Četrdeset dana ili još više
Linija je postala zatajna, a zatim još jednom čvrsto


Svi brodovi su izgubljeni, bilo je samo četiri
Ali ipak taj kit je otišao

[Chorus]
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum
Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići

[Stih 6]
Koliko sam čuo, borba je još uvijek uključena
Linija nije izrezana i kita nije nestala
Wellerman pravi svoj poziv
Potaknuti kapetana, posade i sve



[Chorus]
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum
Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići
Uskoro može doći dobel
Donijeti američki šećer i čaj i rum
Jedan dan, kad je tonguin
Uzet ćemo naš dopust i otići
