A Few Empty Waves

My cargo was gold and myrrh
When it all took a turn for the worse
From then on, diminishing returns

The sea had brought me some fortune and fame
I was still hoping for more of the same
Thought I had to readjust my aim

And then, long and boring
A period of calm

I’d do anything
Me and my companion
A portuguese water dog
In his finest years

I’d do anything
Faithful and hard working
In someone else’s service
We’re bound to spend our days
For the young and the restless
We leave a few empty waves

The 5th of August, I sighted land
Now I ask you if I can
Tie my boat, even leave it in the sand

The sea had brought me some fame
I had been hoping for more of the same
But now I had to reconsider my game

Gather your council
Signal me with flags

I’d do anything
Me and my companion
A portuguese water dog
In his finest years
I’d do anything
Faithful and hard working
In someone else’s service
We’re bound to spend our days
For the young and the restless
We leave a few empty waves

Gather your council
I wait for the flags

I’d do anything
Me and my companion

A portuguese water dog
In his finest years

I’d do anything
Faithful and hard working
In someone else’s service
We’re bound to spend our days
For the young and the restless
We leave a few empty waves
