(printable version)
Well, the party is about over, man. The ocean is getting dark, time for all good little oysters to be in their beds. Time for all sea horses to hit the hay. And time for one last song before we say goodnight and sleep tight, don't let the sand fleas bite. Listen to this.

Down the way where the nights are gay
And the moon shines daily on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica I made her stop

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I have to leave a little crab in Kingston town

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing fish swaying to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I been from Maine to Mexico

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little crab in Kingston town


Aww man, isn't that beautiful? All these ways of saying goodbye to someone you love. Now listen to this.

Under the sea there you can hear
Merfolk singing songs that I love so dear
Fish are dancing everywhere
And the fun is fine any time of year

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I have to leave a little crab in Kingston town
