THE FLYING DUTCHMAN (Ahoy! Ahoy! Ahoy!) Lyrics: Ervin Drake - Music: Jimmy Shirl Richard Hayes - Hugo Winterhalter Orchestra and Chorus The Flying Dutchman was a phantom ship, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! 'Twas doomed to sail upon an endless trip, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! No crew and no skipper to guide her, She sailed on a right even keel. Ol' seadogs would swear that the devil was there With his hand at the wheel! Hark to a tale, me lads! Hark to a sailor's tale! The Flying Dutchman roamed the foamy seas, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! >From Madagascar to the East Indies, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! 'Tis said when a gale was a blowin', The sea phantom hove into view. Then over the gale came the blood-curdlin' wail Of the doomed phantom crew! Hark to a tale, me lads! Hark to a sailor's tale! The Flying Dutchman was a happy craft, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! Until one stormy night the devil laughed, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! The skipper played dice with ol' Satan; His ship and his crew were the cost. He picked up the dice, with his soul as the price, And he tossed - And he lost! The Flying Dutchman was a phantom ship, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! And to this day she sails an endless trip, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! Ahoy, ahoy! Ahoy! (Contributed by Lou Rugani - The Music of the Stars - May 2009)
