CHORDS!!
G#5          G#5/E
We're on the sea
G#5         G#5/E            G#5    G#5/E
We're in a ship and we are sailing by
G#5         G#5/E             B5   F#5
All of the fish and all the octopi
G5                            G#5    G#5/E  G#5  G#m
We look them right into their octopi eyes

G#5        G#5/E
I'm on the sea
G#5         G#5/E            G#5    G#5/E
I caught a mermaid looking right at me
G#5         G#5/E             B5          F#5
I said, "Hey, baby. Why don't you come up top?
          G5                            E
You could flip flop while we cruise the Florida Quays."


F# G#m
  Remember when we said,
F# G#m                   B
  "You gonna see us on a red ship sailing."?
E
  We'll think of you on your solid ground
F# G#m                     B                     E
  We hope you think of us out here sailing around
              Em              E
Sailing around, sailing around      Sailing

G#5     G#5/E  G#5     G#5/E  G#5   G#5/E
    Polynesia,   Polynesia, Poly nes ia
G#5    G#5/E     B
   Oceana,   New Caledonia
F#5             G          E
We dropped the hook on the Capricorn

F# G#m  E                    F# G#m
        Remember when we said,
G#m                      B
"You gonna see us with a sailor tan."?
E
  We'll think of you and your stark white hands
F# G#m
    Building your model ships
 B                            E
Wishing you were sailing around
              Em              E
Sailing around  Sailing around  Sailing

B      E    B     E        B    E
  Polynesia, Polynesia, Polynesia
B      E        A
 Oceana, oh New Caledonia
E
  We dropped the hook on the Capricorn
