Sing haughty Yacht-y Yea


bayboats purse seine whey
journey yearlong gay
laddy inured dryup
haughty yachty yea

mildred mayhem dewlap
naughty jaunty jay
car sons caught in capers
haughty yachty yea

vicar baking in butterfat
orphan boy screwed in larder
bluejay frollic jane
and a haughty yachty yea

bombs in bay bombard
dickson singsick cockpit
french chicks s'envoyent en l'air
oh a haughty yachty yea

idols jailed in temples
choked in garlandy incense
priestly eyedance pose
yes a haughty yachty yea

masons' mildewy masters
with compass stone and pilasters
plan solomon's might on earth
yea sing haughty yachty yea

royal houses love in stables
lords and ladies love in regalia
loving ones love in limbo
cry haughty yachty yea

dote on damsels in december
hey yachty haughty yea
make them deliver in september
ho yickety yackety yea eh

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
