Plenty Time for Praying

There’s fortune in the stars, boys, and treasure in my chest
And I know just the kind of bait you brigands like the best
So come and take a nibble and I’ll catch you in my nets
There’ll be plenty time for praying in the morning

There’s magic in the moon boys, I never miss a trick
And my back is feeling hungry for the taste of salty brick
So take me with your craggy hands and kiss me to the quick
There’ll be plenty time for praying in the morning

There’s holy in the water, boys, and spirits on the breeze
So pull me close and whisper all the sermons of the seas
And I’ll worship all the night away, right down on bended knees
There’ll be plenty time for praying in the morning

There’s whiskey on the wind, boys, the air is thick with rum
So come and have a glug of me to toast the rising sun
And now’s the hour for lovers, one last flagonful of fun
There’ll be plenty time for praying in the morning.
