Black Sails


Black Sails

by Harry Nilsson

Black sails in the moonlight

Black patch on your eye

You shiver your timbers baby

And I'll shiver mine

A treasure map is hidden on your legs

You're veins are very close

Someday I'll wrap my big yardarms

Around your legs and sail away

I'll bury my heart on some island

And take you there some day to find it

I want you I need you I love you

No other man will ever read your legs

But you're so veiny

But you're so veiny you probably

Think this map belongs to you

And I'm so crazy

What can I do?

So raise the anchor

And hoist the canvas

And sail into my heart

I'd love to share with you regarding Harry Nilsson, his life and his music.
