See the lonely township,

peacefully sleeping,

    Em                              Bbm
the sun hides once again behind the sea,

most are safely dreaming,

angel kisses
*Yon makes kissing noises*

and butterflies
*Yon makes a weird roaring screetching noise*

    Em                             Bbm
But sinners can't escape so easily,

    Am                             Em
The murderers, the thieves and the fruadulant,

    Am                                 G
The overweight, the working-class, the foreigners,

Am                        Em
they all must beware, for whats that looming there?

        D              B7
an evil specter on the sea

Waow, ghost ship,

Em               C      D
Ghost ship,

Em                    C         D
Ghost ship, coming to get them,

Em                    C         D
Ghost Ship, sinners beware,

Em                    C         D
Ghost ship, ain't no escaping,

The ghost ship coming near.

*Yon does a high pitched toot-toot*
What was that?
It was the ghost ship
*does toot-toot noise again*
No man its got to be really scary.
*Yon does a deeper toot-toot*
No really disturbing.
Oh... milky discharge.
Ewww... yeah thats better.

Its masts are made of piled up skulls,

its deck is made of human nuts,

its sails are made of sailor skins,

its guts are made of... guts.

It's a feat of engineering

I wonder who built it

I wonder who built it as well Yonnie

G                           D
out in the night, under the ocean sky,

         G                                                          D

I was standing with my baby on the boardwalk and the ghost ship was there,

                  G          Am
I took her to the pictures,

                    Em       C
and then I took her home,

and then I took her to heaven, you know what i mean...

Umm... I don't want to stop it or anything but I am going to go with some of the 
chuckles from the

audience out there and suggest that a few of these punters have spotted the same 
inconscitencies in

this song as I have. Um, when did this song become about some woman?

Well I kinda figured that the guys love all the evil ghost ship, scary demonic muah 
boogyman kinda

stuff. But as soon as you start to talk about love, now you have the ladies listening. 
Because the

ladies want to imagine that they are making love to the singer.


Nah I read it in Rolling Stone go with me, right... 1e and a 2e and 3, 4

Em            C
Ghost Ship

        D             Em          C
My baby kisses like a ghost ship,

           D           Em
I touch my baby on her ghost ship,

                C            D
my trousers are bursting...

Alright, Alright, just a minute here. I touch my baby on her ghost ship??? Where exactly 
is a woman's

ghost ship?

Don't you know?

I don't think he knows! Anyway, anyway I cant believe I am saying this but i think that 
he is onto

something. but you may be coming in a little too fast, now if you want to do this love 
thing you have

got to create a bit of a mood. You have to get inside the head of a female girl, tell 
them what they

want to hear.

Can I give you an example?

Em                        C            D
Ghost ship, Expressing my feelings,

Em                       C             D
Ghost Ship, Being a good listener,

Em                        C            D
Ghost Ship, Thoughtful companion,

I dont even know what this song is about anymore.
It's like foreplay
Its not about foreplay, its about a horrible spectral ship that comes and gets sinners.
What are they wearing?
There is no focus, if there is a woman on it then its because she is a sinner. Do you 
get it? Right?

The woman's a sinner,

she's going to be dragged away,

    G                                                        D
But not before I bone her on the boardwalk 'till the morning comes,

  C                   G
I wrote a sentimental card

     Am                    Em
with flowers and a pink design,

          C              G
She'll be torn apart by demons

While she's touching my buns

Em                 C            D
Ghost ship, caring environment,

Em                     C        D
Ghost ship, den of the damned,

Em                  C           D
Ghost Ship, Overtly Sexual
