A yacht sailed to Horta (8ft swell every 6 secs)

mile after mile onwards we sail hour after hour heading nor'east we go watch after watch we eat and we sleep day after day we're making our way

Water then sky we see through the port wave after wave pitching and rolling from side to side yawing and twisting day after day we're making our way

A big wave hits now and then jarring the boat, knocking us off course reset the helm and onwards we go day after day we're making our way

The sun it rises the sun it sets the sun it traverses across the sky from the east to the west again and again day after day we're making our way

the wind it blows, it blows so hard the wind it lulls we drift we wallow backing and veering front after front day after day we're making our way

creaking and groaning, as we rock and we roll whistling and humming, as the wind it do blow our boat it is singing with pain and with joy day after day we're making our way

600 miles down 1200 to go only a third of the way, plenty to go only day six, ten more to go day after day we're making our way

mile after mile onwards we sail hour after hour heading nor'east we go watch after watch we eat and we sleep day after day we're making our way

day after day we're making our way
