What is this smell that emanates
from me, I cannot say
I wash - shampoo - I shower
It will not go away
Fair landlubber as you avert your nose
I do apologize
I know I stink - I just got clean
Can't you see it in mine eyes?
My hands smell like a yeasty beer
even though I do not drink
The nicest way to say it
'Tis simply "that I've got boat stink"
With boat stink all around me
I now fully understand
How the trades in rum and spices
made their way to the "New" land
For without such sense masking commodities
Humans might prefer to stay far apart
But "boat stink"
blocked by Captain Morgan and cinnamon
Will go straight
to any sailors heart
