    Lyrics

    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)

    In the motion of the ocean, hear the cold wind blowing

    Down the ocean a ship comes riding through the waves
    Filled with hundreds of men they take as slaves
    Just long for their true homeland, Africa
    And to be saved, they want to be free

    Men, women and baby slaves
    Coming to the land of liberty, liberty

    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)
    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)

    They are tired of waiting for a brand new day
    Some of them sing and chant, some of them pray
    And some men got a little tired too
    No one knows if the journey pay

    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)
    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)

    Down the ocean a ship comes riding through the waves
    Filled with hundreds of men they take as slaves
    Just long for their true homeland, Africa
    And to be saved, they want to be free

    Men, women and baby slaves
    Coming to the land of liberty, liberty

    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)
    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)

    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)
    Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
    (Ship ahoi)
