lyrics

GODSPEED, CAPTAIN COOK
(Music:Tim Hunter; Lyrics Frederick McKinnon)

YOUR OCEAN BIDS YOU
AS IT ONCE AND ALWAYS HAS
TO EARN YOUR LAURELS OF DISTINCTION
YOUR OCEAN BIDS YOU

YOUR OCEAN BIDS YOU
TO YOUR FINAL RESTING PLACE
WITH HONOR AND FAME LEFT BEHIND
YOUR OCEAN BIDS YOU

GODSPEED, CAPTAIN COOK
A MAN UNLIKE ANY OTHER
YOU’VE GUIDED US THROUGH THICK AND THIN
EVER BEING OUR GUIDING LIGHT
EVER STRIVING TO DO WHAT’S BEST
WE’LL CARRY ON YOUR FINAL QUEST
GODSPEED, CAPTAIN COOK

(MARINES fire salute.)
BURNEY
Okay, men, get back to work. It’s what the captain would have wanted

GODSPEED, CAPTAIN COOK
YOUR JOURNALS AND CHARTS-- FINALLY DONE
THE STORM WITHIN IS CALM AT LAST
YOU PAID FOR THAT THE HIGHEST PRICE
YOUR SOUL’S TURMOIL—A MYSTERY
YOUR EXPLOITS PART OF HISTORY
GODSPEED, CAPTAIN COOK
