    Lyrics

    Zippy morocco with a hat on his head
    Set sail for the seven seas
    When his mother took to dead

    Barely out of teenagedom
    When his mental map was unfurled
    The next thing that he knew
    He found himself halfway around the world

    With nobody to send exotic postcards to
    With nobody to send exotic postcards to

    Zippy morocco as the admiral of fleet
    Might've been wet behind the ears
    But he certainly was fast on his feet

    Put down a mutiny at the edge of the earth
    He knew the value of the swirling sun
    He never overestimated his own worth

    It was the grief that whetted his appetite
    It was the grief that whetted his appetite

    And the waves they do not tell you welcome
    And the sand on the shore
    Does not spell out a hello
    Salutations they are below the surface
    Listen to zippy morocco, he says,
    "that is what I know"

    Zippy morocco as the perfect pragmatist
    Had a hold on the astronomical odds
    And he knew what to risk

    Staked a million on an easterly wind
    Collected the holy city
    Now the horse traders come to him

    With their beads and cheese and horses
    With their beads and cheese and horses
