The Coffin Ship

As the coffin ship slowly leaves
[Bound] for the new found world.
Children crying – captain cheats
Fever is all around
Mothers [calling] for water, water!

Turn your head and see the sick
Children coughing all around
The cold wind sends a chill
You look for colour on the ship
But the thought of the sick sinks inside.

When will the nightmare end?
Sickness, sickness – sickness all around.
You think it has to end
But when, but when
Sickness, sickness on the coffin ship.
