'l'''''-l 1' The ferry was driven for hours, The people could no longer think, A Reserve man called time. And broke out the shine, And everyone started to drink. From old women in heavy brown stockings, Everyone now took a sip, And despite all his spittin'. His standing and sittin', Alex's makin' still clung to his lip. Big Sadie had very weak kidneys. She just had to go very soon, So over the side, Getting splashed by the tide The boat had its very own moon. When the lightning flashed on its surface, It lit up the sea like the day. Then the sea in a rage. Tore her jeans from her legs, And Sadie had no choice but stay. As the evening turned into a party, And since eating is everyone's habit, A Louisdaler called Jack, Rolled a covering back, Exposing a truck load of rabbits. On the bridge the captain kept look-out, Searching for land in the night, Big Sadie was brave. As she parted the waves, Lit the way with her unholy light. No one knows how far they travelled. That night on the Lakes of Bras d'Or, But they all cheered out loud. When Sandy MacLeod, Yelled out, "I think I see shore." Now the captain as fate would have had it.
