Chumbawamba - Salt Fare, North Sea Lyrics




Salt fare, North Sea
Salt fare, North Sea

Salt fare, North Sea
Salt fare, North Sea

Roll on, roll off
With these words I drown
Topmast secured
Hatches battened down
Sometimes I think
It must be different on land
But from the mast I can only see tyrants
Still in command

Fish and chip supper
Battered, no bones
Hung, drawn and quartered
Drifting alone
One thousand lashes
For the Age of Reason
Salt for your wounds
When the cod's in season

Salt fare, North Sea
Salt fare, North Sea
Salt fare, North Sea
Salt fare, North Sea

We reach the horizon
And sail over the edge
Drunk on our memories
More sober than a judge
I'm wasting time
That I can't afford
I know I'd die on the gallows
Before I'd die of being bored

Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Salt fare, North Sea
Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Salt fare, North Sea
Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Salt fare, North Sea
Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Salt fare, North Sea
Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Salt fare, North Sea
Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
Salt fare, North Sea

    Salt fare, North Sea

    Roll on, roll off
    With these words I drown
    Topmast secured
    Hatches battened down
    Sometimes I think
    It must be different on land
    But from the mast I can only see tyrants
    Still in command

    Fish and chip supper
    Battered, no bones
    Hung, drawn and quartered
    Drifting alone
    One thousand lashes
    For the Age of Reason
    Salt for your wounds
    When the cod's in season

    Salt fare, North Sea
    Salt fare, North Sea

    We reach the horizon
    And sail over the edge
    Drunk on our memories
    More sober than a judge
    I'm wasting time
    That I can't afford
    I know I'd die on the gallows
    Before I'd die of being bored

    Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone
    Drifting alone, drifting alone, drifting alone

    Salt fare, North Sea

  5. Richard Moxham

    Readymades - without a doubt the best banging album to listen to when driving long distance at night, try it and see!

    Pyagrl*16

    +Richard Moxham That makes sense. It's also straight up my favorite album by them. I'm glad a few drifted over to the States.

  6. Brady Marshall

    I like this song from the same band as Tubthumping. Beautiful music, and the line "fish and chip supper" at 2:02.
