lyrics

I am a sailor, stout and bold.
Many years I sailed the salt sea wide,
Long time I’ve plough’d the ocean.
I’ve fought for king and country too.
To my duties true, in battle tried,
I’ve won honour and promotion.
Fare thee well, my brother sailors, now I bid you adieu,
Nevermore, I’ll hear the bos’un’s call,
Nevermore, I say you! I’ll not be sailing anew!
And I’ll set new course, and navigate
’Cross seas made of earth and stone,
And I’ll be a ramblin’ sailor.

And if ever you should want to know
Who it is you’ve pleasure to address,
Name’s Johnson, at your service!
And I’m bidden by His Majesty,
In his name devotion to confess
Toward ladies, blithe and nervous.
Never fear, my dear, of what I might require you to do,
Have a beer, and share my humble fare.
Never fear, I say you, let’s have a brandy or two!
And I’ll fit your soles for wandering
With fine heels worthy of the grade,
And you’ll be repaid (for a game well-played!),
Living with a ramblin’ sailor.

I am a sailor, stout and bold.
Many years I sailed the salt sea wide,
Long time I plough’d the ocean.
And I fought for king and country too.
To my duties true and battle-tried,
Through powder and commotion.
Fare thee well, my brother sailors, now I bid you adieu.
I’ll stow my gear, and put to shore.
Fare thee well, and adieu!
And at peace I’ll be with the vagabond,
Restless within my soul,
Nevermore to be a ramblin’ sailor.

about

Advent Bridgewater, New Jersey

Perhaps a modern equivalent to the symphonic side of classic English progressive-rock groups like Gentle Giant, (early) Genesis, and Procol Harum, but with a little Tubes-style funk and the occasional jazz-rock flourish as well, Advent seeks to blend true classical-quality composition with the excitement and dynamics of rock music. ... more
