When I was a young boy

I wanted to sail around the world

That's the life for me, living on the sea

Spirit of a sailor, circumnavigates the globe

The lust of a pioneer, will acknowledge no frontier

I remember you by, thunderclap in the sky

Lightning flash, tempers flare,

'round the horn if you dare

I just spent six months in a leaky boat

Lucky just to keep afloat


Aotearoa, rugged individual

Glisten like a pearl, at the bottom of the world

The tyranny of distance, didn't stop the cavalier

So why should it stop me, I'll conquer and stay free

Ah c'mon all you lads, let's forget and forgive

There's a world to explore, tales to tell back on shore

I just spent six months in a leaky boat

Six months in a leaky boat


Ship-wrecked love can be cruel

Don't be fooled by her kind

There's a wind in my sails

Will protect and prevail

I just spent six months in a leaky boat

Nothing to it leaky boat.
