Brazil Captain Mainwaring Lyrics


Underwater in a submarine He smokes a cigarette and blows th' steam He navigates though th' deep blue sea All by his lonesome-no company Mainwaring in his submarine Rescued a lady from a sinking ship Then let her go on an iceberg tip Ferried a family from an island head Brought them to cannibals on a beach instead Mainwaring in his submarine His eyes are hollow just like his cheeks His faded uniform not washed in weeks He had a daughter to call his own Poseidon's water took her long ago Mainwaring in his submarine Out the portal late at night A sailor might see a wat'ry light And if ‘e sees it he'll let it be It's the lonely Captain in his submarine Mainwaring, where's your queen?
