lyrics

Swingin’ ’round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
Passing time on Baroness, swingin’ ‘round the line.

Well, I been up before the dawn, behind the wheel all mornin’ long.
Headed for la Isla de la Quadra, siguendo mi corazon.
We’ll meet up just fine, we are all on Island Time,
But I gotta get in and get out again and get swingin’ ‘round the line.

Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
I gotta get in and get out again and get swingin’ ‘round the line.
Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
Passing time on Baroness, swingin’ ‘round the line.

Tonight some starlit bay, I been makin’ music all the way.
I don’t know what time it is or what month or what blessed day.
Sometimes the seas are rough and I hear that the sun don’t always shine,
But tonight we’ll be together singin’ swingin’ ‘round the line.

Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
Tonight we'll be together singin' swingin’ ‘round the line.
Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
Passing time on Baroness, swingin’ ‘round the line.

Hi-diddly-dee, a sailor’s life for me.
Hi-diddly-day, a life on the ocean waves.

Crossing water in the sun, to new digs when the day is done.
Buckin’ through the narrows, “Hold on everyone!”
Keep an eye to the running tide, our depth is a lookin’ fine.
That hook’ll set, and on our first try we’ll be swingin’ ‘round the line.

Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line.
That hook’ll set, and on our first try we’ll be swingin’ ‘round the line!
Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
Passing time on Baroness, swingin’ ‘round the line.
Swingin’ ‘round the line, swingin’ ‘round the line,
Passing time at anchor, swingin’ with a Baroness!
