This is a song by Ween, from the album The Mollusk
Another Ween ballad, sung in a strange seaman's accent. A tale of woe, a tale of lost love; unusual to hear this with sincerity in a Ween song, but this is an atypical album, so why not? See some of the bittersweet poetry contained herein:
I've loved you so long
since you were a child
I've cared for your every need
I've tried to make you smile
when all the while
you wanted to leave
Aww, poor sailor man. The music rocks back and forth like one would expect from an ocean-themed album, and it is a very legitimate song.
After it's over, they start playing a warped version of "I'm Dancing in the Show Tonight," like a reprise.
