(In French, but enough to learn the tune.)

There once was a little ship
Took a long, long, long trip
Which had ne- ne- never put to sea
Which had ne- ne- never put to sea

When the crew’s food would not last
For a victim lots were cast
The poor ca- ca- cabin boy was “it”
The poor ca- ca- cabin boy was “it”

To the heavens he made a plea
That he might not eaten be—
Neither fri- fri- fricasseed nor fried
Neither fri- fri- fricasseed nor fried

As the cook made a fire hasty
For that morsel young and tasty
Fish by the thou- thou- thousands jumped on deck
Fish by the thou- thou- thousands jumped on deck

So this timely visitation
Saved a horrid situation
Shall we s- s- sing it all again?
Shall we s- s- sing it all again?

Note: This song was originally French.
The repeating the last two lines is supposed to sound like the rocking of a ship.
