On the Beach ( again )

On the Beach

putford tern
The Putford `TERN` One of the `ORANGE SHIPS`

I WISH I HAD SOMETHING TO DO, ON THIS FIRST TRIP AWAY FROM YOU,
SHIP SHES ROLLING LIKE A PIG, STANDING BY THIS JACK-UP RIG
ENSCO 80`S GOING DOWN, SHES GOING DOWN, GOING DOWN
SEAS NOW CALM FULL MOON TONIGHT, REFLECTING TIMES NOW OUT OF SIGHT.

CHORUS
ORANGE SHIPS OUT ALL YEAR THROUGH, ONE DAY A MONTH TO CHANGE THE CREW
NOONE KNOWS WHERE WE`LL BE, EVEN OUT ON THE COLD NORTH SEA.

TEN DAYS OUT AND MY LOVE GROWS, BOUND TO YOU LIKE THE TUGS ON TOW
PAST THE LIGHTS OF THE SHAUN BAROQUE, STAND-BY YOU THROUGH HEAVANS LOT
AMETHYST, EXCALIBER, CLIPPER, CLEETON, HEWITT, ROUGH;
GAS FIELDS SPREAD OUT ACROSS THE SEA, GALLAHAD, LEMAN, INDE

I WRITE TO YOU NOW EVERY DAY BUT MY LETTERS CANT GET AWAY
LAUNCH THE BOAT BOYS FLY THEM WAVES; WORDS OF LOVE PLEASE FLY TODAY
TONIGHT INSHORE WEVE GOT THE PHONE, BUT ITS RINGING IN YOUR EMPTY HOME
FROM GAS FIELD SPREAD ACROSS THE SEA, GALAHAD, LEMAN, INDE

AS MORNING BREAKS I SEE YOU SMILE AND FEEL YOU TOUCH ME FOR A WHILE
CHERYL YOU ARE ALL TO ME, EVEN OUT ON THE COLD NORTH SEA FEEL THE WARMTH OF THE LOVE THAT GROWS, BOUND TO YOU LIKE THE TUGS ON TOW
GAS FIELDS SPREAD ACROSS THE SEA, GALAHAD, LEMAN, INDE.
